When trying to learn something, it’s important to understand whether you’re struggling with a specific point, or a transition from one specific point to another.
Usually we mistake our difficulties in learning with an inability to understand or carry out one specific element of what we’re learning, when really we’re struggling with the transition between two elements.
Many people are willing to learn specific things, but few people are willing to practice transitions between them.
It’s fun to level up and learn a new skill for instance, but it’s very boring to integrate that skill into everything else you already know in your life.
But if you can practice transitions between skills, the movement between the things you know…
that’s how you level up.
