I am motivated to learn a new skill. Actually we think too complicated to have a start. Just don’t think too much and be insisted to involve several minutes per day

Commitment is the best way that leads you to success 😉👍 Even by practising small basic things everyday Divide your highest goal into bite sized chunks. Start practice right now. Get the feedback and then work on yourself more depending on it 😉 Good luck for you guys ❤️

This is really true, I started my typing lessons online a couple months ago and until now I've done 35 hours total (I'm sure, the app tells me the exact time I've been practicing), now I'm already doing 80 words per minute, and in the first 20 hours I used to do like 30 words per minute, and it's just as he says, after that I already had the capacity to type in a functional way, from then I just went up and up, because you feel more motivated to pratice when you feel your skill is actually useful. I really hope I encourage someone to start typing, it has been really helpfull for me when taking notes on my virtual classes. This is also something that I wanted to do since I was a teenager, now I'm 22 years old, and I think this is something I could´ve done before, I hope someone younger can read this and start practicing new skills.

I have been thinking of trying the Ukulele, thank you man! lol. Great, well presented and interesting talk and of course he is right, Years ago I used to have to teach my own tutors to run a course I ran all over the country and If I had learned the skill set he presented here I could have made it far easier for the new starters, this was well worth watching. BTW, Can anyone tell me WHAT the 9K dislikers were wanting?, he even entertained us at the end, some people!!!!!

Mi opinión es que no creo que sean necesarias tantas horas para aprender y ya que puede ser en varios casos que llegue la frustración

Great Ted talk! Just wanted to add that finding a way to get feedback while you practice (ex. through a facebook group or meetup with experts) can help speed up the learning curve. Also about Step 3 "Removing practice barriers" - You will automatically be self-disciplined if you choose to learn a skill that you value and that aligns to your mission statement. I recommend the book "7 habits of highly effective people". So good!

How cool would it be to get in MATRIX and with just a blink of an eye we would be able to learn from how to fly a helicopter to becoming an astronaut!!! But how do you define learning? Is it your experience? Is it just reading books or watching videos? Is it all about acquiring a skill or competency???
