Accelerated learning to get good at anything in only 20 hours is explained by author Josh Kaufman.  For the accelerated version of the steps to quick learning – here’s the rundown:

  1. Decide what you want to learn – set your target

  2. Deconstruct the skill you want to achieve – separate the skill into sub-skills

  3. Research the skill just enough to do the deconstruction

  4. Eliminate barriers to practice – make it easy to do what you want to do

  5. Pre-commit to practicing your new task – at least two twenty minute sessions per day
