Learning things insanely fast can be replicated
So what’s the solution?
To get back into a state of deep practice by pushing outside your comfort zone again and learning the next thing.
Repeating this process again and again means rapid myelination, and a lightning fast increase in skill over time.
If you’ve ever seen someone trying to learn something but they were rubbish, and then just a few months later you see them again and they’re basically a pro… it’s because of this principle of deep practice, and the effects of myelin.
Recognise that the space where you’re struggling, frustrated, and having to focus insanely hard to get something right, is the point of maximum possible increase in skill. Most of us try and avoid it, we practice what we’re more comfortable with because we can do it better and we think we’ll get a better result that way.
But instead we need to cherish that state where we can’t quite do “the thing” yet. Welcome it, strive for it, pursue it… Because that state will utterly transform you the longer you can stay within it.
Knowing that myelin exists and knowing how it works, will change the way that you develop skills for ever. If you want to read an awesome book about this which goes into way more detail and strategy, read “The Talent Code” by Daniel Coyle.
Tony Robbins recommends it too. It’ll change your life.
Have a great week,
