How to Learn Part 1
If you want to be good at anything, you need to get good at learning. Sports and Hobbies all take time to learn to be great at. But it is more than just time… There is an equation for learning G=P(T+F). Greatness equals practice, times focused learning time. Focus is the key to becoming a great learner. To focus, you must avoid distractions and multitasking. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to get in a peak learning state. Every time you get distracted, it takes another 3-10 minutes to get back in that state. When you multitask, you never reach a peak learning state. Your learning time needs to be focused. Completely free from distraction and multitasking.
