In his talk, he shares how having his first child inspired him to approach learning in a whole new way.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
All that time it's been a lie. The 10000 refer to experts becoming world number 1... 20h makes sense. The researching, reading and watching video education takes most time and then if we are only talkingabout executing the actual skill is probably enough just the 20hs. I learned to build websites quite fun. The part that took long was really only the taking in of info. Once I was able to work on it myself it took only 1week to know what I am doing. Thank you fellow multipod I appreciate your spech and I think I can hold one too
I believe a lot of people have curiosity that drives you to learn new things. At the same time do not know how to start, based on this idea, many people will look for ways to start, at the same time, we also hope that they can find the most effective way, and eventually we spend a lot of time to find a way. When the method is found, sometimes we stop because we are worried that we will not learn it after we have finished reading the method. When we read the method will also stop, because we found that it is very difficult, and finally give up learning.
> IN A NUTSHELL - YOUR WELCOME
DECONSTRUCT THE SKILL - EXACTLY BE ABLE TO DO
WHEN YOUR DONE
LOOK INTO THE SKILL
WHEN YOU ARE DONE
Learn to enough to self-correct
- a. - REMOVE PRACTICE BARRIERS
4 - Practice at least 20 hours
SKILL - INSERT SKILL HEAR
WHEN I AM DONE I WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE
AND THEN FINALLY BE ABLE TO LEARN SAID SKILL
I think that's literally the worst video I have seen in a long time, all this sales speech about his life, trying to mesmerize you all along with cute pictures, lyrics songs and flirty jokes all along. I do think the artist is great at what he is doing (allegedly expert into something, not really well-defined at anytime), as playing the 4 cords of humanity, but removing all the sense of what can think about just seeing that 20 is the new 10,000 and that your name should be the next expert that creates the wheel but seriously, even if all the ladies are crying in the audience, work on your poor content delivered on an Hollywood fashion. Great acting though
3) Remove barriers to practice, (distractions, television, internet) all of these things that get in the way of you actually sitting down and doing work. More you are able to use just a little bit of willpower to remove the distractions that are keeping you from practicing, the more likely you are to actually sit down and practice. This is my breaking point, I've just stopped to using social media for roughly 8-9 days, and believe me I've changed a lot about the things which I feared to do most earlier. But more importantly I've started to believe in myself.
I would like to see how someone can get decent in ballet after 20 hours, using this theory and all. It's a nice heuristic of learning, but not all skills are equal... Some may be learned in 20 hours... a lot of them dont...
It's fascinating to read so many cynically, attention seeking comments from people that took time to watch a video about how to learn something in a shorter period of time... the irony is too much. lol
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
