Rapid Skill Acquisition: How to Learn New Skills Quickly

http://www.patrickschwerdtfeger.com/sbi/ Want to learn a new skill quickly? Watch this video for tips on rapid skill acquisition and how to learn FAST. It boils down (1) deconstructing the task, (2) practicing each increment in isolation and (3) always pushing to failure. It's at the barrier between ability and failure that your brain will learn the quickest. And how much time does it take to learn a new task? Many researchers believe it takes as little as 20 hours of effective practice to become proficient. This video references Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers" book and Tim Ferriss's "Four Hour Work Week" book. Malcolm Glad well discusses the 10,000 hour rule to become 'world class' in a given field and Tim Ferriss is well known for reverse-engineering skills and learning them in record time.
