the Dots

"Paul Jun has written a book on a topic near to my heart:
self-education. I've watched Paul's self-schooling over the last few years via email, and now you can discover the strategies and tools he's picked up along the way."
— Ryan Holiday, best-selling author of Trust Me, I'm Lying.

"Never before in history have we had as many chances to learn and grow and become -- and absolutely squandered them.
This book is about someone who didn't."
— Jeff Goins, Author, The In-Between



I wasn’t stimulated by traditional education and was desperately searching for ways to adapt. I began tapping into the resources that were available to me while disciplining myself to take control over my education. Over time, I developed new habits that enabled me to turn self-education into a daily practice, all the while putting me on the career path of a writer.

Connect The Dots is a concise manual to help you get started on the path of self-education. The opportunity to learn anything to improve how you lead your life and do your work is more accessible than ever. This book isn't about blaming the education system or pointing out its flaws; it's about developing habits, fostering an intense desire to learn, and realizing that learning how to think, to connect the dots, helps us live greatly.
