How you learn something new

An excerpt from How To Become The Best at Anything.

When you are trying to learn something new or you are teaching someone something new, it can be a very daunting task. It is difficult because learning something new is not easy, but it can be made easier if you understand how learning works.

Learning can be divided into four basic parts: concepts (definitions and examples), processes (how it works sequences), principles (cause and effect relationships), and productions (procedures/classifications).

Deliberate practice results in the automation of a sequence of steps, the automation of productions.
