IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Wanting to learn something new comes from the curious part of us. But then we have to put in the work. Many feel discouraged during this early learning period which may lead to soon giving up.
However, it is possible to learn anything in just 20 hours - by putting in only 45 minutes a day for about a month.
Decide what you want to learn, then break it down into smaller, manageable pieces. Identify the tools and skills behind each step.
For example, if you want to bake your own bread, the pieces would be making dough, letting it rise, kneading it, shaping it and putting it into a pan, and then baking it in the oven.
It may require you to remove all your electronic devices while you start your learning.
However, you could also combine your favorite distraction with your new activity. (For instance, turning on your favorite podcast while you bake.)
Commit to practice for at least 20 hours to overcome that period in the beginning when you feel incompetent and stupid.
When you reach 20 hours, you will be surprised at how good you are.
