*Disclaimer: I’m an idiot*
Learning became easier for me once I figured out how I learn best. I didn’t realize how I learned until I became relatively good at one particular thing.
*What does that mean!?*
Once I became good at a particular skill and then attempted a new skill, I used the learning tools from the first skill to the new skill.
This allowed me to learn how to learn better.
I learn best when I put everything in an outline. The main category is the skill. The sub-categories are more particular aspects of the skill. The sub-sub-categories are the details… and even more fine specifics are under that.
Think of it as a tree. A knowledge tree. The tree is the skill. The big branches are the categories, the sticks are sub-categories, and the twigs the details.
Everything becomes easier when you realize what branch it belongs on…. for me.
