Learning To Learn: Expertise and Skills

We are expected to learn and build skills but the system never taught you how

You Should Focus On Sourcing Sound Theory

Even today, opinion masquerades as science — truths are sometimes delusions. Good theory is relevant, practical, detailed and convertible into a behavior. 

Good theory is relevant, practical, detailed and convertible into a behavior. But remember:

  • What you see on Google is not actionable. 10 principles can't be turned into skills
  • And textbooks? Not much better. Knowing what the research says doesn't tell you have to do it. 

Remember: The theory you think works often doesn't. 

The Right Theory With Skillful Practice Saves Time, Money & Frustration

You Should Focus On Using Skilled Practice

Unless you happen to be an athlete, you never learn the secrets associated with efficient practice. Even then, many athletes might just practice physically, but ignoring the mental to get the most from your effort. 

  • You must practice smart or you see few gains for your effort.

Asking college students to practice something outside of class is really interesting. Some take to it like fish in the water. But others only do what’s needed for the grade. The grade is more important in their eyes then getting something they can use. Some will always try to fake it — just too lazy to practice it seems.
