Have you ever wondered how you learned your mother tongue?
Well, you never really learned it right?
You never learned the grammar specifically or studied from notes. Your brain just learned it. Because you heard everyone talking the language around and with you.
Without realizing your brain learns it. But do you know, it has a process of doing so?
The brain works like a big computer. The brain can do much more than a machine can: humans think and experience emotions with their brain, and it is the root of human intelligence.
The more we practice and rehearse something new and the more recently we have practiced, the easier it is for our brain to transmit these experiences efficiently and store them for reference in the future.
How many times have you decided that now you will get serious and start coding every day for a certain amount of time?
You might have decided this several times I’m sure.
You probably say that you are going to take up some 30-day coding challenge or take part in some hackathon. You might even start doing this with determination and follow it for few days.
But the issue is, that while consistency is really important while learning any new skill, learning it in the correct manner, is more important.
There are certain steps to learn any new skill, you need to break it down, decide which steps to learn in which order, and then begin doing it.
Your brain learns by doing these steps everyday one by one.
Here are the top 10 strategies for learning any new skill:
- Ditch your traditional learning style.
- Make it more meaningful for yourself.
- Find out the correct steps for learning that skill.
- Learn by doing.
- Study the greats, and then practice.
- Find the correct mentor and take inputs.
- Teach what you learn.
- Spend more time practicing things you find difficult.
- Take frequent breaks.
- Test yourself.
Take small steps and start climbing the ladder of learning your desired skill.
