Learning how to do something new is always fun, and sometimes it can even lead to financial success. But who has time for all of that learning when you're already working the 25 jobs you need to pay off your loans? Well, you can learn to learn better, and we've found five great deals on tools and training courses that will level up your brain and teach you nifty new skills to boot.
Studies show that a broad vocabulary leads to professional success -- and even more importantly, being a formidable Words With Friends opponent. The Award-Winning Vocabulary Builder Bundle can shape you into both. You'll get lifetime access to two different word-expanding courses: Vocab 1, which includes a database of over 500 million words and numerous word lists, worksheets, and flash cards to help you learn them, and Spreeder CX, a speed-reading training course that will teach you how to speed-read websites, documents, and e-books without losing any information. Normally both courses on their own sell for over $200, and the bundle retails for $442, but you can get lifetime access to the Award-Winning Vocabulary Bundle at 95 percent off for just $19.
The 2018 Award-Winning Speed Reading Bundle will have you reading up to three times faster. That's three times the books, documents, web pages, and Wikipedia plot summaries you'd normally spend your day slogging through. You'll receive lifetime access to 7 Speed Reading EX 2018, which will train you to increase your reading speed and retention, so not only will you be sprinting your way through text, but you'll actually be absorbing that information as well. You also get Spreeder CX 2018, an electronic reader that will allow you to upload any reading material you want and keep your speed-reading muscles in shape at three different display speeds. Normally the bundle sells for $478, but right now you can slap 96 percent off that price and get lifetime access for just $19.
If you're looking to increase your productivity, be it at work in a professional sense or just in a general "If I spend any more time on this couch, my molecules might fuse to it" sense, then you need the Ultimate Productivity Bundle. The bundle contains 27 hours of instruction, tips, and life hacks from industry successes to teach you how to unlock your creativity and get more done every day, including lessons on time management, public speaking, and speed-reading. There's even a 12-step guide to doubling your productivity within 24 hours, which stands out in particular if you're reading this while procrastinating on an overdue project or studying for a big exam in the morning. The Ultimate Productivity Bundle normally sells for $1,274, but Cracked readers can take 97 percent off that price and get lifetime access to every course for only $36.
The biggest hurdle between you and learning new skills is your stubborn old brain. Neuroplasticity: How To Rewire Your Brain will teach you how to dismiss bad habits from your thought-meats and learn new positive ones. Your brain will also become more elastic (not literally, though, it's still the same grey clump), allowing you to easily develop new skills and better manage your memories, in case you'd prefer to forget about the time your brother pants'd you at the bowling alley during your 11th birthday party. The course normally costs $149.99, but you can get lifetime access at 92 percent off for just $10.99.
Have you been swearing to yourself and anyone within earshot that you will learn how to play an instrument for several years now? Have you made little to no to maybe even negative progress? Don't worry, Pianoforall is here to save the day.

In addition to the 204 lectures and 10 hours of instruction included in the course, you'll receive nine instructional e-books to continue your piano education until you're cranking out hits like a pre-MAGA Kanye.
