Any new skill is first read, demonstrated and then practiced.
It works on the simple prophesy, “No pain, no gain”.
Say for example, solving maths requires the following steps:
- Read the chapter.
- Go through each and every solved examples given in the textbook.
- Pay attention during the lecture and tutorial classes.
- Practice the solved and unsolved questions again.
These steps could be applicable for numerous other stuffs; like mastering a new computer language, lessons to drive a four wheeler, the tricks to nail an interview or group discussions and etc, etc.
Honing a skill requires rigorous efforts and sleepless nights.
Your preference doesn’t count, all that matter is your ability to grasp and work on it.
People will help you may be once or twice, but at the end of the day you have to work on it all by yourself.
