Ultralearning - Scott Young
“We want to speak a language but try to learn mostly by playing fun apps, rather than conversing with actual people. We want to work on collaborative, professional programs but mostly code scripts in isolation. We want to become great speakers, so we buy a book on communication, rather than practice presenting. In all these cases the problem is the same: directly learning the thing we want feels too uncomfortable, boring, or frustrating, so we settle from some book, lecture, or app, hoping it will eventually make us better at the real thing.”
Möchtest du Schwimmen lernen, tanzen, Klavier spielen? Ein großartiger Geschäftsmann werden, Maler? Der schnellste Weg, deine Skillz zu verbessern ist es in der echten Welt zu üben. Wirklich schwimmen zu gehen, eine Firma zu starten, ein Bild zu malen.
Fear of feedback is one of the biggest impediments to faster and more effective learning. Don’t let it hold you back. If you want to improve your public speaking, get in front of an audience and have your coach and listeners give you feedback. If you want to become a better lover, try out new things and see how your partner responds. If you want to become better at cooking, hire a coach to expose yourself to as much feedback as possible.
The more (high-quality) feedback you can get, the faster you’ll improve.
