This is 110% correct. Looking back on every skill I've learned and accounted my hours for, it is around the 15 - 20 hour range that I feel "I got the hang of this" and that the dream isn't foolish, but by practice and repetition, the perception becomes reality.

@R3plicant Work as hard as you can and as smart as you can, ignore the 20 hour rule or 1000 hour rule (whatever it was) bc its interesting but its acc a waste of time to look at. A bit like this conversation we are having.
R3plicant 2 dias atrás
​@Jack Hirst firstly, you only need 1000 words to have a basic conversation, secondly, maybe we can split language learning into speaking/listening/word memorising, and when we put 20 hours in each of this skills, we could have a good basic conversation with people. But I agree that this exactly 20 hour number may be interpreted how I want and I made not 20 hour but 100 hours of skills that I need to put my effort. Generally this number just shows that we need to put way less time into a skill to learn, than we think
Jack Hirst

@R3plicant there is 10000 plus words to learn by listening, speaking and written. Plus different patterns, grammar etc. This 20 hour rule is definitely bollocks when it comes to language learning.

@Jack Hirst But, maybe, you can listen french now? You just have learned different skill :) But honestly, I am at about mine 20th hour of learning spanish and I am bad at speaking too, but I can undestand what is conversation is about. Maybe that's because I am only speaked spanish for only 2 hours?

I really believe in everything he has just said. It is important to avoid procrastination guys. I am telling you this because of my life experience. I moved to Canada when I was 20 years old and my life has changed completely. I was studying computer engineering in my home country and was about to complete my 3rd year when my mother took the decision to move to Canada. It was really difficult at the beginning because of the language and culture. My knowledge about English was probably between 30% and 45%, so I had to invest part of time studying English. I proposed to myself that I had to learn the language at a university level in 1 year, and it worked. I still need improvements, but I feel really proud of myself because I was able to learn the language. After having learned English, I applied to University of Toronto to study Computer Science, and since the semester was going to start on September of the following year, I took that year to study everything about my career. I took my time to study advanced functions, calculus, physics and programming. What do I mean about all of this? You can learn everything you want if you really want to. The crucial part of all of this is to believe that you can do it. I personally do not believe in what the science says about the "SPECIAL KIDS". We all are smart beings that have the same capacities to learn everything we want. You can do it guys if you are willing to take the effort. I hope you have a great day and I wish you all the best ☺️. NEVER GIVE UP.

The more widespread a thought becomes the more subjected to scrutiny and opposition, not fully relating to quality or aurhenticity. Amazingly enough, it can be Politics that make a very popular and genuine concept agreeable or unacceptable. Any content or context that has a global positive or negative back up of any kind will reach Political grounds! From that point on it will be manipulated so much that lost of perspectives and origins can be lost in space! This being so common and widespread involves a lot of research to figure out true meanings that may not have been fully uncovered in the first place anyway. This added complexity may cover up the simplicities and availablility of present solutions and the fact that anything complex is based on a cocktail of simple facts and events that are part of acceptance or rejection of natural evolution

Psicólogo Miguel Cisneros
@Patrice Lauverjon Good evening, Patrice. I had thought about this for a long time and I want to know your opinion on this. The only way to know what's real and what's true is to invest ourselves in it, right?. It's only when we do this that we realize that some beliefs that we hold are actually strange. Let me ask you something. You don't really know when something is real until you feel it, right? So, how do we grasp the truth? What is the truth for you? How are you relating to it?

The effective way of doing that is setting aside time for studying each day, just like you do for eating and sleeping. Maintain a consistent schedule from day to day. The length of time required for study will vary depending on the individual's knowledge of the subject.Your focus will increase if you make it a habit to study in the same spot at the same time every day.

Love it! Put 20 hours practice in it and have fun! Thinking about my karate journey 2hrs×10weeks here I am feeling much more comfortable compared the stressful emotion at the middle. Now the next learning is about C++ programming for a R5 module problem. Love the idea of self-correction milestone. And the dedication of 20 hours practice. My comment about the 20 hours is that it's just the practice time, it doesn't include 3 also very important things, the preparation time, the decomposing time, and the reflection time.

1. Deconstruct the skill. Decide what you exactly want to do with skill and break the skill, practice the most important skills. 2. Learn enough to correct yourself. Practice just enough to notice when you do mistakes and get on the right path. 3. Remove the distractions. Disable notifications and remove all the distractions. 4. Practice at least 20 hours. Try to do 20 hours of deliberate practice. Stick with it no matter what. Additional:- The major barrier to skill acquisition isn't an intellectual one, but it's emotional.

This is so true. I learn freestyle waacking dance in 2 weeks and I literally committed every single day for an hour or 2. I don't do any dance within that 2 weeks, I just focused on throwing my hands. No music, no heads, no shoulder movements, no footworks, just pure arms (basics of waacking) to train my muscle. Now I've already been dancing (popping) for years, but never tried waacking before. Today I've almost transitioned my style into waacking. This is the same thing with learning other things. You have to commit OUT OF PASSION and you will learn faster, compared to when you're learning things not in your interest.

When i was learning english, i've tried to memorize all the words and vocab as much as possible, but after months i still can't speak or even give a comment in youtube or instagram post in english. After watched this video i realize, i don't need all the words in oxford dictionary to start speaking, like that ukelele chords, know some important words is enough for you to speak in foreign language, and that's what i do now.

@By Any Means Necessary If you are just saying "I'll just get 20 books on how to code" it's a form of proscratination. The point is to begin as soon as possible and learn from self correction. Learn from errors that you are making as you are practising the skill (e.g. coding). Learning should be about learning from actual mistakes.
By Any Means Necessary
Could you elaborate on the 2nd point?

QuickTalks 6 anos atrás
Summary: Just 20 hours is enough to become “reasonably good” at any skill. 1. Deconstruct the skill - Break the skill down into its most basic parts. Which parts are necessary for hitting the goal you have? (i.e. if your goal is to sing a song in Korean, you can primarily focus on pronunciation, not learning a bunch of vocabulary) 2. Learn enough to self correct - Learn enough to realize when you're making mistakes. 3. Remove barriers to practice - Turn off your phone, unplug the TV. Put your guitar, piano, language book in the middle of your room, not behind your stack of dirty laundry. 4. Practice for at least 20 hours - Commit to 20 hours from the start. You're going to be frustrated at times, so committing beforehand will help you push through the frustration.

Loved this talk! Imagine as teachers, we can design our course instruction to follow this exact process. That is, we can deconstruct the skills, identify the most critical/fundamental sub skills, decide what the right mix of resources are, teach them how to self-correct, create the barrier-less conditions, and structure the 20 hour plan for that skill. Perhaps in math, chapter 3 is the big skill and the sections are the sub-skills. Hmmm...I am going to play around with this.
artmaven 4 anos atrás
As I watched this TEDx talk, I kept saying over and over, "Spot on!" Isn't that what we, as teachers, have already been doing all along? No? Then you're either new to teaching, haven't figured it out yet, or are a professional development speaker in need of a pseudo-new hook so you can pick up ridiculously large fees instructing experienced and accomplished educators on the latest, wiz-bang teaching method neatly packaged and marketed to justify your product. That stated, I do agree that this is a terrific talk -- for students, as reinforcement for what we educators do or ... for those who are otherwise, clueless about the validity of practice, exercises and drills. Jus' sayin'

This video reminds me of when I was learning Italian language. I got the most spoken verbs of Italian language on Google and I learned them very well so I could have a basic conversation with Italians. That was the start for me and within a month I could speak the language much better than I thought: it was just like the Pareto rule because I chose the 20% that mattered most to keep a basic conversation.

@Fabio Pancot i agree and i can tell u german is one of the most complicated languages, the grammar is just overwhelming and it doesnt make sense. Woman is feminine and so you need to use an article/genus which is feminine called 'die' but u need the same article for a banana as well, why? I mean have u ever seen a feminine banana? So first big common issue for german language learnes.

i simply like this courageous guy, playing an instrument in front of many people maybe in order to prove "The main barrier is not intellectual -- it's EMOTIONAL"

If there is one take away, It definitely should be “The major barrier to skill acquisition isn't intellectual, it's emotional." It just like exercise, the mental barrier is much harder overcome than the physical obstacle. Let's face the fear and get it done folks !

And the best thing is we have more hours in a day than it is required to be reasonably good at something. This is something we always overlook. Come on guys, let's get better every single day. The 1% rule and we all will reach our 20th hour soon. Let's keep learning.

Such a brilliant finding. So true, the key to learn a computer language is learning just enough and do a project and then iterate the process

Yes he is totally right! Ive noticed as well that if you can allocate just up to 1 hour per weekday to do smth that makes you happy or helps you move towards your dream - you accomplish it so much fatser and become so much happier! Thanks for sharing Josh and TED!

@Aline Azevedo Yup. Schools teach students very little to succeed. Students have to deal with unnecessary and uninterested Assignments. As a school graduate myself, I have no idea how to invest money, save money, do taxes, manage expenses, what to do with my first paycheck, know about life, and things like that😕😔. I don't even know why I went to college for.

@Aline Azevedo thing is, majority of teachers are more concerned about getting passed the curriculum as efficient as possible. I dont blame them that much tho. In america, teachers are just not paid enough. The best teachers tho look outside the box and improve the students foundation with videos like this, and ultimately, become mote efficient at getting through the course.

I watched this video beginning to end one time. Decided to learn how to solve a Rubiks cube. I put in roughly 20 hours in a month like he mentions; a few minutes to an hour a day reading a pdf on how to solve a Rubiks cube and watching videos on BRvid. This man is not making things up. I put it to the test and I never thought it would actually work. This is truly the key to open the genius mind in you.
