🌼Here’s The Fastest And Easiest Way To Master Any Skill Quickly.
## I’ve discovered a unique way to learn anything fast
Humans have always admired people who become masters of a skill or discipline because we recognize the dedication and skill required.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably tried to learn something new, only to get frustrated with how hard it is and how much time it takes. Most people never get through 90 days…
What if I told you there’s a process for learning that allows you to master anything quickly? Going from zero to highly competent in months or weeks rather than years.
## Rethinking how we learn
When I was in high school, my parents enrolled me in a speed reading course.
It was quite an odd thing for them to do.
First, it was very expensive, and we were a relatively poor family. And second, they’d sent me to a traditional school with outdated teaching techniques — I studied Latin, believe it or not.
So the speed reading course was an extraordinary experience, and it changed how I looked at the world.
I learned we read books slowly because that’s what we’re taught to do. Remember, as a child, being taught to read aloud while pointing at the words with your finger? That process stays with us and burns into our subconscious that books take a long time to read.
If we believe we can read a book much faster, we will do so.
I have two modes for reading now — one for relaxation, where I read at a natural pace, and my speed mode, where I _ingest_ the information and apply it to a specific purpose like a blog post.
## 6 steps to learn new things fast
Since I took that course, I’ve developed a system for learning other things quickly.
– A foreign language
– How to sell
– Information technology
– Machine learning
– Finance and investing
Accelerating the initial learning process has enabled me to get ahead of the curve and take advantage of opportunities.
Try it out and see if it works for you too…
1. **”Clear the runway”**
It’s impossible to master more than one new skill at a time — so focus on one for at least 90 days.
Choose something that will make the biggest impact on your life… or else life will get in the way.
If you want to learn quickly, don’t treat it like a hobby that you’re going to learn over the years and decades.
2. **Ignore what people consider a “normal” timeframe**
Aim to learn quickly in days, not months. Education systems instill the belief that learning must be slow and take a long time.
But anyone can learn much faster if you adopt the right mindset. I break up my goals into 90-day chunks. You’ll be amazed at how far you can progress in two to three intense 90-day periods.
**3. Give up (some of) your hobby time**
Invest the time upfront to get through the “being bad” phase as quickly as possible. Shorten the learning curve by front-ending the learning.
– Wake up earlier
– Cut back on TV or social media time
– Replace the News with tutorials on your chosen skill
Pro Tip: open a new YouTube account and only watch “How to” videos on this channel. This way, the algorithms will only serve you content related to the skill you want to learn. You’ll get the best stuff and won’t be distracted by unrelated videos.
**4. Read the best three books you can find**
Reading 3 books on anything can make you an expert, as long as they’re of high quality. Select authors with the highest ratings on Amazon or books that are recommended by people who are already experts in the thing you want to master.
Don’t aim to read over three, or you’ll take on more information than you need. The information may even conflict, which will be confusing.
**5. Buy the tools you need at the outset.**
People will tell you not to buy the tools you need until you’re more advanced. If you’re committed to learning quickly, this advice won’t work.
Buy what you can afford, but don’t go too cheap. It’s demotivating to use low-quality tools.
I read that Tiger Woods, who often changed his golf swing, keeps clubs everywhere around the house so he can pick them up and practice anytime. He’s incredibly determined and incorporates his chosen profession into his daily life.
You don’t need to become as obsessive as Tiger, but even adopting a portion of his approach will speed up your learning curve.
**6. Get a coach when you can’t go any further — but not before.**
Don’t hire a coach too early. Invest the time to learn as much as you can first _so you know what it is you need to know_.
If you go to a coach for help early on, you’ll be subject to what they think you should learn and how long they think it should take you.

Joining groups is over-rated and will probably slow you down. The social aspect is distracting.
Anyone can dream about learning a new, life-changing skill, but few people really master one. Starting, becoming frustrated, and giving up on learning new things is a well-worn path for most of humanity.
I’ve found that speeding up the initial learning phase–the “being bad” stage–helps to avoid frustration and makes it easy to persevere.
Try the process yourself — take a single-minded approach for 3 months, focusing on one skill, removing distractions, and dedicating the time to improve quickly.
You’ll find the benefits are compounding — once you learn one skill quickly, the next one becomes just that little bit easier.
