ML40: How To Learn a New Skill
2 days ago
The focus of this short episode is skill acquisition – getting you from the novice, beginner stage to an intermediate level of proficiency as enjoyably and effectively as possible in the skill you want to learn.It is not a guide to reaching expert level performance or mastery – which is field specific and is formed of tacit knowledge that’s extremely hard to replicate or explain in words. I start by discussing my method for filtering learning projects before outlining the three pillars you’ll need to consider in order to learn what you want in a way that works for you - mindset, habits and environment - exploring three separate themes under each of these pillars. Remember that the point of exploring these frameworks is not to give you a set method for acquiring any skill – because that doesn’t exist. It’s to ask you the questions and give you the tools to construct your own best way of learning what it is that you want to learn!
