2013 EDU: TKR: How to learn anything... fast

How to learn anything... fast-
-
Author and business adviser Josh Kaufman reveals a new approach for acquiring new skills quickly with just a small amount of practice each day.
-
Wait!  First read: 
How to use this video really fast
  • Fast forward through the first 3 minutes
  • Stop the video at 19 minutes
  • That gets you the basic information
  • Next start doing what the man says
  • That is how you use what you hear
  • You can  watch the rest of the video later
  • But there is only one way to use what you are told
  • Do it.  Or do not.  There is no study.
