The First 20 Hours: Mastering the Toughest Part of Learning Anything

Josh Kaufman is the author of the #1 international bestseller, 'The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business', as well as the book 'The First 20 Hours: Mastering the Toughest Part of Learning Anything.' Kaufman specializes in teaching people from all walks of life how to master practical knowledge and skills. In his talk, he shares how having his first child inspired him to approach learning in a whole new way.

In the video, you will see Kaufman explain the four broad steps to his method. They are to:

1. Deconstruct the skill.

Decide what you exactly want to do with skill and break the skill down to its components. Theareafter, practice the most important skills.

2. Learn enough to correct yourself.

Practice just enough to notice when you do mistakes and get on the right path.

3. Remove the distractions.

Disable notifications and remove all the distractions.

4. Practice at least 20 hours.

Try to do 20 hours of deliberate practice. Stick with it no matter what.

Nearing the end of the video, Kaufman explains that the major barrier to skill acquisition is not an intellectual one. Instead, it is emotional.
