Of course all learning these days doesn't have to come from books. We are so lucky to have access to apps, videos, blogs, articles, mentors, teachers and software. Dr Google has all the answers, so in today's day and age, ignorance is no excuse, as information and education are all there, and it's all free.
Before I totally understood that the only true wisdom is knowing you not nothing, when I was learning a new skill or a new topic, I always thought that it should be easy.
Once I read it or tried I should absorb it or get it.
If I didn't, then, it wasn't for me, and it wasn't my thing.
Turns out that's not the case learning something worthwhile we have to stick at it. In an interview, Greene talked openly about how learning must stretch us and cause frustration inside us because we are going beyond our current limits.
US author and professor Cal Newport wrote that the way to mastering any skill is deliberate practise, calling it "the most important (and under-appreciated) step towards building a remarkable life."
Newport said that world-class performers are that way because they know how to practise. Mostly deliberate practise was doing what was hard, not easy, over and over even if it wasn't fun. It's continually practising when you don't feel like it.
There are so many great examples of deliberate practise articles on the net, and I encourage you to read them.
