Tips for Learning ANYTHING Faster

First, a few tips for self-learning, in general, to speed up the process:

1. Build REAL Things

If you just take courses or tutorials and don’t build anything with them, you’ll lose a lot of what you’re learning, you’ll have to go back and re-learn things and it’ll take you longer.

When you build real applications as you learn… the learning sticks, you remember more of it and learn faster.

Pick 5-10 “things” you can build as you learn and build them as you go through your training.

2. Take Courses

It seems to be a foregone conclusion in the development world that you have to learn everything on your own and you’re somehow less smart or less of a developer if you take courses.

Nothing could be more wrong.

Taking courses (even paid ones) is the smartest thing you could do because those instructors have taken the time to structure your learning for you so you don’t waste time wondering WHAT you should learn. Plus, they can teach you things you might never have thought of.

Don’t be afraid to take professional courses and spend money on them if you have to.

3. Find a Mentor

I was resistant as anyone to getting help from a mentor. I resisted it for years because I thought it would be an insult to my intelligence if I needed a mentor.

Wrong again.

I ended up in a situation where I was forced to have a mentor and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I learned faster than I ever had with him because things that were so difficult and frustrating to me were simple and easy to him… and he could explain them to me in minutes.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Thabo Motsoahae

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
