How to Be a High School Superstar free pdf Do Less, Live More, Get Accepted What if getting into your reach schools didn't require four years of excessive A.P.-taking, overwhelming activity schedules, and constant stress?" "In "How to Be a High School Superstar, " Cal Newport explores the world of relaxed superstars--students who scored spots at the nation's top colleges by leading uncluttered, low stress, and authentic lives. Drawing from extensive interviews and cutting-edge science, Newport explains the surprising truths behind these superstars' mixture of happiness and admissions success, including: - Why doing "less" is the foundation for becoming "more" impressive.- Why "demonstrating passion" is meaningless, but "being interesting" is crucial.- Why accomplishments that are "hard to explain" are better than accomplishments that are "hard to do." These insights are accompanied by step-by-step instructions to help any student adopt the relaxed superstar lifestyle--proving that getting into college doesn't have to be a chore to survive, but instead can be the reward for living a genuinely interesting life.
