When you are getting old , it is very difficult to learn the new skills.We will cover why we are having this problem at some other post since this requires detail and indepth post.
Often we have been asked this question? Why someone is talented, and the other person is not gifted?
Long long ago, when we started learning, we all started from zero skills. As and when years progress, we slowly not moving far ahead as required. Our society has told us that we don’t possess that skill. But are we exploring on how to learn? The person who is an expert at a particular craft might have figured out his strength in learning.
Movement like Zen
Learning any skill is movement. There are a million parts from that skill, and one must learn those million part to become an expert.
3 Methods of Learning
Three parts have been a method as part of learning any skill.
- Text oriented
- Voice oriented
- Video oriented
All the above three parts must be co-ordinated to learn any skill.
When our teachers write the teaching at board or We read from a book that is text-oriented. We learn a skill as text. The classic example of this is Languages, Grammar, and Maths.
When our teachers teach through their voice, or we learn it as groups, then it is voice-oriented. Then there are Audiobooks, MP3 players and websites which explains as Audio elements. These are excellent methods since our brain is capable of absorbing it as subconscious level. Audio courses are sequential, and you cannot skip, and it takes time and you cannot skip the learning.
We have teachers teaching in class. They teach lessons, and we observe those lessons. We go home and replay those teaching at our minds and repeat it. Also, there are other mediums for learning a skill through online video courses. The video courses are useful in learning, and complex concepts are explained through video courses. Also, it is teaching where the students can be entertained and engaged as well. The advantage with the video teaching is you can create a virtual class of million students with high content. Thanks to the internet.
Identify your Strength
Now, why I am explaining all the above. When you learn any skill, you can identify which one you are good at and focus on learning through that medium. We have been told that text is the only medium available for teaching. Internet and software are changing the way that we learn.
You can find out which one you are good at 1.Text 2. Audio 3. Video and start learning.
Practice dividing your thoughts as tiny thoughts and give space to new thoughts. That way you get a clear understanding and learning becomes slow and fun. Slow learning is very effective. Anything that you practice as a slow process you will be able to remember the skill in the long run. When you learn something slow also make a mistake and try to learn. You will never be able to forget and you no need to memorise it as well.
Slow in Learning + Mistakes while Learning= Develop great skill
