Activities: The Secret to Learning a New Skill (Even When You're Busy)
Source: The Daily Muse

I bet there's not a person out there who doesn't want to learn new things. Whether they're practical and professional (coding, writing, design!) or just for fun (drawing, playing an instrument!), learning new skills enriches our lives and our minds.

The only catch? Developing a new skill will take time. Time not many of us have—right?

Well, not exactly. Author Josh Kaufman wants to help everybody break down the time barrier to learning new things. In the entertaining video below, he explains that while, yes, it takes a great deal of time to really master a skill, to become the best of the best, it takes far less time to go from knowing nothing to being reasonably good. In fact, it only takes about 20 hours.

Watch the video below to learn exactly how you should be spending that time to get the most out of it, and hear the fruits of Kaufman's 20 hours of practice.

All that's left to do is decide: What do you want to learn?
