In 2017, versatility is the name of the game.The most successful people are the ones who know the skills they need and put in the effort to gain those abilities.

The question is how? Well, OptiMind is a good start, but it's not the whole process. It takes effort and time

But not as much time as you think. According to author Josh Kaufman, all you need is twenty hours as long as you use that time wisely. Here's how.

1. Don't Get Frustrated

When you first try to learn a new skill, it's frustrating. You aren't going to be good at it right away, and it can be hard to keep going. The thing is, it's important to keep pushing. Once you get through the initial struggle, you'll see huge progress in a very short time. This is known as "The Power Law of Practice," an accepted pillar of the study of learning since 1926.

2. Break It Down

Every skill is made up of what Kaufman calls "sub-skills." Those are the parts that make up the whole, which are much simpler to understand. When you focus on the sub-skills, you're able to build a strong foundation that makes learning the more complex elements that much easier.

3. Commit The Time

It's critical to make a commitment to spending 20 hours practicing before you even start. 20 hours is a great number, because it's far from overwhelming, but it's scientifically proven to be enough time to improve by leaps and bounds. Most people fail to learn new skills because they give up before they've put in the time. Stick to your 20 hours and you'll be amazed by your progress.

If you use these steps you can acquire any skill you need to find the success you're dreaming of.
