In the video above, he reveals the four steps to learning any new skill, fast.
The four steps in Kaufman's method are:
- Deconstruct the skill: Break down the parts and find the most important things to practice first. If you were learning to play a musical instrument, for example, knowing just a few chords gives you access to tons of songs. If you want to learn a new language, learn the most common 2,000 words and you'll have 80% text coverage.
- Self-correct: Use reference materials to learn enough that you know when you make a mistake so you can correct yourself.
- Remove barriers to learning: Identify and remove anything that distracts you from focusing on the skill you want to learn.
- Practice at least 20 hours.
