The Learning Struggle
Have you ever been inspired to learn a new skill like double thumb or two handed tapping? You started out really motivated, but the more time you put in, the more your motivation decreased. This is actually a totally normal phenomenon.
Learning something new often feels like a setback. Either we give up or we are muddling our way through it, telling ourselves that we’ll get it right next time. Therefore automating bad technique, that will backfire later on.
The Secret Sauce
In "The Four Stages Of Learning" I explain how the process of mastering a skill works and how all stages have different effects on our motivation. Once you know the principles of the cycle of competence, it will be very apparent why we sometimes have trouble following through with learning something new. Further, in "The 4 Stages Of Learning" you'll learn why there are only two blissful states of learning and how to shortcut the cycle to keep that motivation going.
This tutorial might be one of the most important ones you will ever watch, when it comes to progressing on your instrument. Because, only when you know what causes motivation to drop can you work against it.
