Revise in the background

Have an end goal in mind when you're learning.

  • What do you want to do with this information?
  • How is it going to improve your life?

Even if you just want to do it for fun, find a project you can't do without learning the skill.

Find out the ideal time you can dedicate to learning, and also resting.
Don't try to push yourself and to fill your mind with too much information in one session. Try to learn over multiple days to let the information sink in.

Watching online tutorial videos can become addictive. Keep in mind that you are trying to learn something, not get distracted.

How long you would be able to study depends on the density of the subject and the level of your knowledge about the subject.

Once you've learned a new skill, try it out for yourself. You will make mistakes. When you do, review your notes and keep going.

You'll learn the most from your own early errors.

Set some time aside to see what courses are available.

Take notes. Write down important steps, tips and tricks.
