“Practice makes perfect.” — Proverb
You want to acquire a skill.
It is not enough to memorize the “how to.”
- • Learning from experience is easier to remember than rote memorization.
- • Skills can be used unconsciously.
- • It is hard to verbalize a skill that has been acquired through experience.
Continue practicing a skill again and again until you can use it unconsciously.
- • First of all, try to use new skill and acquire a sense of it.
- • And then, study the skill and understand how it works.
- • Finally, keep in practice until you master it. Leaving the trace of learning as is a good way to maintain your motivation.
