The Steps to Expertise and Why It’s Not As Hard As You Think
Have you ever wanted to be an expert?
There are several ways to master a skill or topic. Apart from repetition and practice, there are several methods you can use to ensure you absorb what you’re learning; the infographic above outlines some of these.
Perhaps the most important step that people often overlook when it comes to mastery is application. The brain has a difficult time retaining new information. In order to solidify one’s experience in a specific topic, he or she has to consider applying the new skill on a daily basis.
Application can be as simple as talking about the topic or chunking and repeating smaller movements that make up an entire skill. Lastly, it is essential to incorporate as many senses as possible during the learning process.
