The Self-Taught Professional Phenomena

Online Learning Resources (Video)

Dedication

  1. Pick learning resources that you can finish from start until the end. Start small, maybe 30 minute tutorials, before you go into 40 hour long commitments.
  2. Study regularly. It’s easy to forget something and get lost when you come back to it. I can’t stress enough, 30 minutes a day is better than 3.5 hours in one sitting once a week. Your brain will have more time to contemplate what you have learned.
  3. Balance theory and application. There is a spectrum of learners. Ones who only focus on theory and are not able to execute on one side and ones who learned how to do and don’t understand the “why” on the other. Make sure you do a bit of both. Alternate.
  4. Enjoy feeling stupid. That’s right. When you learn something, there is going to be a huge learning curve in the beginning. You will doubt yourself and feel stupid. Don’t. It’s going to get better, you just can’t see it yet.
  5. Track your learning. Track what you have done and what you should do next. Feel free to pivot. Try to have a learning plan that has an end-game. For example, if I want to learn how to make a website, I know I need to know HTML, CSS, some backend and some frontend. I should be learning those things in succession with my goal in mind. If I alter my studying, or my goal I can adjust accordingly.
