Hey all and happy Sunday,
I have a lot of learning projects in the pipeline, and selected three for this season (3-6 months.) I don’t aim to master them; I just want to have a good (non-superficial) understanding of the overall picture, and to be moderately proficient in applying the principles/tools.
For background, the projects are art (moderately skilled), data science (only interested in foundation/background level) and reading (practise covering as much as possible, without sacrificing thoughtfulness.) There is also a new language but I’m keeping that very light (radio and penpal exchanges only.)
Even though they are meant to be recreational, and I have learning strategies for each of them, I sometimes struggle to juggle between them. I also have other commitments (I would say the ratio of commitment:recreational is 60:40). It’s a bit frustrating and I feel that it’s more of a personal flaw, as I know that many others have even less recreational time, yet successfully diligent with their learning projects. (I don’t beat myself too much though, haha)
So, I am interested to hear about your learning projects, how you manage them without losing your sanity, and how you maximise short time periods. Plus your own tips for learning. Thanks :)
