    I will tell you what has made learning easy. We can guess what could have made it hard.
    * Practice regularly, eg 20 minutes every day is better than 1 hour a week. It's especially true for languages.
    * Practice. Always put in pratice what you are learning. It's project driven learning. Too much theory leads nowhere.
    * Connect with a community. It makes you feel motivated. If you don't, you may feel isolated.

    One thing was hard for me to learn is to speak freely in professionnal meetings. I worked as a programmer and I was somehow concerned that I could say stupid things. Now I'm learning sales just to overcome this anxiety. So far it works.

    What about you Denise? you may be struggling in something if you are asking that question.

      Hi Guillaume,

      How are you?
      I really appreciate your answer.
      Thank you so much.

      question.
      I am new and this was a "Big One" to learn "Right off-the-bat". Thank you for being able to let this valuable cat out of the bag for me. I was just beginning to wait for LPT,s Life Pro Tips.

    well in school learning was really frustrating ..because there was no framework why you where learning certain things .. just teach everyone the same stuff and see what happens ..

    i do not know how to explain this precisely but it become easier to learn as you learn where the holes in your knowledge are and look for information to fill in the gaps ..

    then if you are learning skill in new areas you pick a level you want to get to then learn the basic building block that build up to that level ..

    so if you want to learn a language.. say you start out with the goal to be able to have a conversation wtih most people who speak that language .. which is not what they have you learn a language in school to do ..

    there you can find a course that teaches you the basics ..then find people to practice the language with ..and work up to a conversational grasp over time ..

    without a real reason to learn something ..some goals to put the learning to use .. you will get far more frustrated ..or give up..or completely forget everything you learn shortly after learning it ..the same way most people do in school

    now to answer the specifics of your question.. i learn much better through software than classroom lecture ..when i need something repeated it is easier to rewind a video as many ime as i need to ..than to ask a teacher to repeat that over and over again ..

    now there are definatly times you need a real live human being to explain it to you directly..

    it is a matter of figuring out how you learn and retain and build knowledge most effectively

    Patiently learning, reviewing and studying concepts was tough for me. For quite a while. Simply slowing down, calming down and hugging my fears helped me balance myself, for a nice shot of poise.

    I think that the key to learning anything is only to continuously practice.

    It's not important how much it is frustrating because if you stick to it and refuse to quit you will ultimately learn and master it

    In my point of view for me, if I'm interested in something and want to learn it then I will learn it easily. I like learning and gaining knowledge but if it's something I'm not interested in and don't want to learn about then it gets very difficult and frustrating and wish I was not put in a position where I'm forced to learn something I don't want.

    Execution. I learn fairly easy, but then you try and try and try and you can see results... Just not the results you want.
    EG. Prospecting on LinkedIn. It works, they reply... But yeeeeeeeaaaaaah and I get nervous (when they want a call) and I gather confidence, call, converse and boom.
    Not that easy bra

      Pay someone else a commission to close the warm lead/deal. You'll have to train them as far as the product/service so everyone is on the same page (client + deal closer + you).

      This way you handle generating all the warm leads and let someone else that's comfortable on the phone do all the talking/selling. This will also free up time for you to find more warm leads.

      Create a sales system, optimize it over time.

    Something I partly learned from Claude Whitacre (several weeks ago) is that at first you start something and it's kind of diffiult ... However as you keep going you start to become better at it. (And that kind of inspires you to keep going and learning.).

    HTH.

    Learning is best thing because you can get knowledge about new thing. If you have interest to learn new things, i do not think you can get bore while learn. Its depend but some interruptions make people frustrate while learning.However, do not take worries, if you learning independently then you can learn more thing than learn with experts. Search on google and find difficulties that you have to face.

    Sometime it can be boring, long, irritable and hard. But if I set a goal, I dont stop and continue my way to achieve success. Your emotions and condition don't have stop you.
