Best-selling author Josh Kaufman explains how learning anything can be done in just 20 hours.


And, forget the 10,000-hour rule; he says all you need is what he calls “Rapid Skill Acquisition” to learn any new skill in just a matter of weeks. And, finding a way to make it fun also helps.

“In the process of learning something new, the faster it’s fun, the more likely it is that you’ll keep practicing and the more you practice, the better you are,” explains Josh.
