Kids are like sponges — they seem to absorb anything put before them quickly and almost effortlessly. As we get older, we seem to lose this innate ability to rapidly soak up information.
This video shows how to make learning a new skill – any skill – fun and exciting, regardless of our age.
Josh Kaufman makes excellent points during this video and honestly believes in his theories. In fact, companies such as Google and Facebook have hired him to speak at internal events to help spread his mantras. He is celebrated for his book: The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business, making a clear argument for personal education, which is everyone’s responsibility regardless of whether they are in college or not.
If you’ve been trying to gain understanding of something, whether it’s simple or complex, Kaufman’s ideas will be extremely helpful. Best of all, he negates the notion that it will take you 10,000 hours to learn a skill – a more practical approach to learning something versus mastering it.
