“Decide to DIY your education.”
—Chip Conley, American hotelier, author, and speaker
I recently learned about Chip Conley through Seth Godin. They first met when attending Stanford and were part of a think tank or mastermind group supporting their entrepreneurial spirits.
Without question, Stanford is one of the finest academic institutions in the world, yet Chip and Seth saw it as limiting in some way. They decided to attract other great and creative thinkers, and take responsibility for their own extracurricular education.
How and in what ways can and will you create a DIY education plan for yourself? Who will you choose as your professors or partners on your journey?
