The First 20 Hours – How to Learn Anything

If you find 20 minutes to spare, watch this video:

Not only does Josh Kaufman show in this video that it only takes us 20 hours to learn something new, but it also shows how research results can be misinterpreted: how we went from needing 10000 hours to become a world-class expert in a highly competitive field, to the idea that it takes 10000 hours to learn something.

So, do you need to learn a new coding language for your PhD, or learn a new hobby? Set aside 20 hours for deliberate practice (using the hacks that Josh Kaufman shows in his video), and you’ll be well on your way to learn something new.
