Learn Anything in 20 Hours with This Four Step Method.
Deconstruct the skill: Break down the parts and find the most important things to practice first. If you were learning to play a musical instrument, for example, knowing just a few chords gives you access to tons of songs. If you want to learn a new language, learn the most common 2,000 words and you’ll have 80% text coverage.
Self-correct: Use reference materials to learn enough that you know when you make a mistake so you can correct yourself.
Remove barriers to learning: Identify and remove anything that distracts you from focusing on the skill you want to learn.
Practice at least 20 hours.
“Live your life more deliberately, more joyfully and completely. Live your life by choice rather than by chance, by design rather than by default.”
“One of the lessons I have learned in life is that if you don’t act on life, life has a habit of acting on you. Don’t waste it procrastinating.”
“Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change.”
