Learn anything in 20 hours

Josh Kaufman gave a great TEDx Talk in which he reveals the four steps to learning any new skill, fast. Here is his video:

It's a long, 20-minute TEDx Talk, but entertaining and enlightening too. We strongly recommend you to watch the video, but if you don't have the time, here are the four steps in Kaufman's method to learn anything in 20 hours:

  • Deconstruct the skill: Break down the parts and find the most important things to practice first. If you were learning to play a musical instrument, for example, knowing just a few chords gives you access to tons of songs. If you want to learn a new language, learn the most common 2,000 words and you'll have 80% text coverage.

  • Self-correct: Use reference materials to learn enough that you know when you make a mistake so you can correct yourself.

  • Remove barriers to learning: Identify and remove anything that distracts you from focusing on the skill you want to learn.

  • Practice at least 20 hours.

Kaufamn also wrote a book about that method that you can find on Amazon - See the book.

20 hours amounts to just 40 minutes a day for a month, so what are you waiting for! What is the first thing that you are going to learn with the 20 hours method?
