How you learn is just as important as what you learn. We have never been taught how to learn so we struggle and give up learning complex skills.
The process of learning complex skills can be accelerated by using certain principles.
Organize Your Learning Process
Too many people waste too much organizing themselves in preparation to act.
Few people focus on organizing their lives to make the action easier.
And fewer people transfer their energy into consistent action.
Consistency is a key principle in internalizing a new skill. You just need to spend 15-30 minutes a day in deliberate practice.
Don’t spend too much time planning. If you don’t act, you never get started.
Be clear and specific about your action plan. You might need to write yourself a note, “I am going to write 200 words of a blog post at 9 am tomorrow morning.” Then stick with it for the next 66 days to convert the action into an automatic habit.
Adapt To Change Quickly
Things rarely work out as planned. Despite your best intentions, life will throw obstacles in your way and you will lose interest in learning the new skill you just committed to mastering.
Learn to be adaptable. Try new experiences, travel to new places, discover new types of food, and make new friends as often as possible.
Do something that takes you out of your comfort zone at least once a week.
Focus On What’s Essential
You could either spend 10,000 hours of practice trying to gain mastery in a skill or focus on 20 hours of deliberate practice to learn the essentials.
If you are learning a new language, it could be worth your time to learn the 250 most used words first. These words are likely used 80% of the time. In just a few days, you will have gained enough mastery to understand what people are saying in that language.
What’s the 20% of effort that gives you 80% of results. Focus on the aspects of your learning that actually delivers results.
