Learn with Steem : Learning new skills through summarization
I want to share about a sharing from someone that I listened to on a podcast the other day about how we can learn something from someone else through their books. He said that we don't have to spend the time to read the whole book but we look for others who have read all the books and summarize the key points and lessons in the book. This is because we have limited time and we should strive to learn as much as possible from others with less time consumed. He also adds that the time we have saved for reading the whole book can be used to learn other useful skills that we are meant to learn in this lifetime. I think this way of learning is smart and I actually only read summaries of the books since I was in college and I still do the same but now I can find more people and resources on book summaries in form of videos, audiobooks, and also written down. The next thing is you have to recall what you have learned from the summary by practicing it and also teaching it to others in a way that 10 years old kids can understand or else you still haven't mastered the new skills. I like being a jack of all trades but maybe will master a few skills only that I am really passionate about.
How about you all? How do you learn a new skills or experiences? I prefer to read the whole book if its about someone else life experiences but if its about learning a new skills I prefer the summary. Until then have a great day ahead.
