A note to self that I found elsewhere:
Anytime you are acquiring a new skill, remember the best path for doing something new or different looks like this:
- Find someone who is good at it.
- Watch that person do it.
- Get that person to talk about how they do it.
- Practice doing it yourself with his or her guidance.
- Ask the person to give you feedback.
- Practice doing it on your own.
- Seek feedback until you’ve mastered it.
