Here is the trick to learn just about anything. With learning I mean to “get going” in some direction; not to become the world’s best expert. Just “get going”. You could also say that it is merely a trick to “get into the flow”.
For instance, getting into the flow in some course. It costs you 20 hours only.
Check out the 20-minutes TED-Talk video here:
Here is the short version what you need to do. It consists of 4 steps only:
- Deconstruct the skill: What do you want to achieve? Break apart the skill.
- Learn enough to self-correct. Start with simple tasks. Learn just enough to start practicing.
- Remove practice barriers. Remove distractions, TV, Internet. This will need some will power!
- Practice at least 20 hours. Take for instance an hour a day.
You will be done in 3 to 4 weeks.
In 4 weeks we have Easter Monday. Try it out. With the course material in Rechnerorganisation, for instance. Or Rechnernetze und -Organsiation. Go ahead. Just 1 hour a day.
Being “in the flow” is fun.
