One of the reasons children learn skills faster than adults is because their minds are open and focused. Learning for them is an enjoyable process.
Observe a child acquiring new skills. They stare with complete concentration, taking in all inputs and paying full attention.
Their minds are not cluttered with objections or instructions.
As an adult, to adopt this type of focused attention helps us to learn any skill faster.
Attach Learning With Feeling
The next time you are in an unfamiliar situation and learning a new skill, observe everything around you. Take in not just the visual images but the feelings around you. When you get a feel for a certain skills, your body creates corresponding kinesthetic sensations which help you to repeat that action.
When learning a new skill, it is important to mute the chatter in your mind and focus instead on the experience.
When you are skiing downhill for the first time, enjoy the feel of the snow and the ambience around you. The moment you shift your focus on to your technique or start thinking about falling, you’ve cut the learning experience short. While it is important to focus on the visual and aural inputs on a ski slope, it is more important to build your awareness of the movements of your body.
When your mind is quiet, your body picks up subtle sensations which direct you towards the adjustments you need to make in your technique. A busy and worried mind will block this feedback.
The key to learning is to quiet the frantic mental activity in your mind so that your focus and awareness is increased.
