Learning Versus Doing

Filed under: Accelerated Learning, Motivation — Luke @ 12:43 pm

I have spent years studying about accelerated learning techniques, was not able to apply it much until recently. It just seemed like no matter how hard I tried to learn, it didn’t make a difference.

The trouble was, I was not putting them into practice. They required being put into practice and used repeatedly until they started kicking in. Instead of using the techniques repeatedly until the skills kicked in, I used them briefly while I was studying them specifically, then moving on to the next topic of interest.

My strategy of focusing completely on that which I am currently learning the most about, is not a bad thing in the right context. It lets me get a lot done faster. Unfortunately it has caused me to forget to practice certain things that need daily application to fully attain. Only by trying these things daily for a long enough period of time can they be ingrained to a great enough extent to make a person into a speed-learner.

The solution is to form a daily practice routine, and to then commit to learning them. Although the skills don’t come overnight for most people, they are worth attaining, even if it takes months or years.

LE Skills
AR  : need practice : not acquired overnight : more than information
NI Temporary Focusing
NG  : maximizes assimilation of information : not skills
DO Strategy
IN  : use valuable skills daily : schedule time for other focusing
