Mantic59 has said on several occasions that learning old-school wet shaving is learning a new skill like riding a bike or playing a musical instrument. A few weeks ago I discussed deliberate practice in relation to this. I decided to look a little more closely on what it takes to learn and–especially–cultivate a new skill.

Learning A New Skill

Learning something new requires a combination of attributes. Here are some key factors that can help facilitate the learning process:

  1. Curiosity: A strong desire to learn and understand new things is essential. Curiosity drives exploration and encourages asking questions, which are fundamental to the learning process.
  2. Open-mindedness: Being open to new ideas, perspectives, and ways of doing things allows for more flexible thinking and facilitates the assimilation of new information.
  3. Critical thinking: The ability to analyze, evaluate, and interpret information critically is crucial for discerning what is credible, relevant, and useful. Critical thinking helps in problem-solving and making informed decisions.
  4. Persistence and resilience: Learning often involves setbacks and challenges. Persistence and resilience enable individuals to persevere through difficulties, learn from failures, and continue making progress toward their goals.
  5. Self-discipline: Setting goals, managing time effectively, and staying focused are important aspects of learning. Self-discipline helps individuals stay on track and make consistent progress in their learning journey.
  6. Adaptability: The ability to adapt to new situations, environments, and methods of learning is valuable. Being adaptable allows individuals to embrace change, overcome obstacles, and adjust their approach as needed.
  7. Communication: Effective communication skills, both verbal and written, are essential for expressing ideas, asking questions, seeking clarification, and engaging with others in the learning process.
  8. Collaboration: Learning often occurs in social contexts. Collaboration with peers, mentors, and experts can provide valuable insights, feedback, and support that enhance the learning experience.
  9. Reflective practice: Taking time to reflect on one’s learning experiences, identifying strengths and areas for improvement, and adjusting strategies accordingly can enhance learning outcomes and promote continuous growth.
  10. Resourcefulness: Being resourceful involves seeking out and utilizing various learning resources such as books, articles, online courses, tutorials, and hands-on experiences to acquire new knowledge and skills.

By cultivating these skills and attributes, individuals can enhance their ability to learn effectively and adapt to the challenges and opportunities that come with acquiring new knowledge and skills. I’ll be tackling each of these elements in up-coming articles!
