How to quickly learn a new skill?

 How can we learn new skills?

Years ago, the phenomenon of books with attractive titles such as "How do you learn French in a week?" This phenomenon disappeared with time after the many disappointments that afflicted many people due to spending their money on these trivial books that they did not take advantage of. I too fell into this trap..

Interestingly, I found myself making the same mistake again when a friend advised me to learn programming due to the multiple opportunities it holds in the future and its importance in this advanced technical age.

This time I did not buy a book to learn this skill, but I went directly to YouTube and wrote how to learn to program Android applications quickly. That was a big mistake because I ignored the long lessons my friend advised me.

And since you - dear reader - have started reading the article, I have to admit to you that there is no shortcut to learning a skill.

But I will give you some tips that will help you a lot in learning a new skill with high efficiency and in less time.

Make sure to link what you learn to your interests

If you are looking for a quick way to learn new skills, the easiest way to do so is to direct what you learn to your interests in life. If you want to learn Excel, start by creating tables with the name of your favorite movies or the order of the Spanish League clubs, for example. The more you try to adhere to the passion and the pleasure when learning, the easier learning becomes, and you will feel that the time you spend on learning is shorter.

Try to find ways and means to relate everything you learn to what you are interested in. And you do not have to adhere to the method of the French language book by learning the names of animals first if you are not interested in animals at all; Because you will definitely be bored on the first page.

Focus on one skill

Stop convincing yourself that you can learn French and design web pages at the same time if you organize your time for the two skills together, it is not actually what you imagined and you will quit soon become diaspora and you quit learn the two skills together.

Make sure to focus on the skill you are learning and harness your mental energy in one area so that you can learn new skills very quickly.

Choose the right time to learn

Choosing the right time is one of the most important factors that will help you absorb information and avoid feeling frustrated.

Avoid learning at night when you are prone to drowsiness and yawning, or in the early morning during which you wage a battle for awakening.

For this reason, the evening is the most appropriate time for learning, when the brain is ready, prepared, and charged with energy and activity.

Continue learning daily

As I told you at the beginning of the article, there is no shortcut to learning a new skill. The more you make sure to spend time and effort continuously, the better the results. The sooner you build the house, the more inevitable a collapse with the first jolt.

  • Limit yourself to a schedule that you stick to daily.
  • If you find it difficult to stick with learning daily. Set yourself specific days (three days a week, for example) and make sure to stick to them.

Consult experienced people and learn from Their mistakes

If you are really eager to learn, show what you have learned to someone who has more experience than you. Whether you are in school or hold a Ph.D., be prepared to learn from your mistakes and correct your learning path whenever needed.

Make sure to practice what you've learned with someone who shares your passion or a friend you trust to rate your performance. Whether you play an instrument or are designing a house design, other people's opinions will help you develop your skills and correct mistakes more effectively.

Make sure you get enough sleep

Regular and adequate sleep is an important factor in your overall mental health, and it is an important factor in enhancing your ability to learn a new skill. If you follow the daily learning session with enough sleep at night, the skills you have learned will be less likely to be forgotten and lost.
  • Most adolescents need eight to ten hours of sleep per day.
  • And adults generally need from seven to nine hours a day, and some adults may need more than nine hours a day.

No magic wand or super capsule will make you able to digest a new skill in a few days or hours. But by following the previous steps, learning will be much more flexible and easier than you expect.
