Teachable moment

You have to learn a new skill. Do you prefer to read about it, watch someone else do it, hear someone describe it, or try it yourself?

I’d like to think I am a very practical person, reading has never been my strong suit and I lack imagination. What I am trying to say is that I prefer to be shown how to do something and then try it myself. I mean who has the time to read instructions or listen to someone; Save me the time and just show me how to do it.

In the past I used to be the “try it myself” kind of guy…. I still am to a certain degree but what I have learnt is that other peoples experience can be the difference of learning something or mastering something. You can only be good yourself but with proper guidance you could become the best, don’t limit yourself by only doing one of the above. Do them all, as it will help you get the best understanding of what you’re trying to achieve.

Everyone is different and we can learn so much from other people. Some are born naturals and some are just noobish (cough cough… ME). It’s ok to accept help when you’re learning.
