Accelerated Learning: Get Good at Anything in 20 Hours Good Life Project

    • Self-Improvement

What if you could get really good at almost anything in only 20 hours?
Sounds like an impossible promise, but it's not. Accelerated learning hacker and author of The First 20 Hours: How to Learn Anything... Fast!, Josh Kaufman, says anyone can do it.
In today's special expanded Riff, Josh busts myths about what it takes to learn new things quickly. He then reveals a 5-step protocol to get good at anything in only 20 hours. Along the way you'll accelerate your learning by deconstructing complex skills, learning what to practice and when (and what to ignore), and figure out how to remove barriers to deliberate practice.
In a world where perpetual learning is the norm, the ability to rapidly learn new things is mission-critical. This will help get you started!
