The first 20 hours -- how to learn anything: Josh Kaufman at TEDxCSU - YouTube
1. Deconstruct to simple concrete sub skills/tasks to master
2. Start early, Fail quick - learn to self correct
3. Remove barriers, obstacles, distractions to learning
4. Practice 20 hrs to constantly improve

Need to pass the frustration / incompetence phase to new skills
This is an emotional challenge, not intellectual

10,000 hr to become expert. 20 hr to learn something new.
