You might be wondering why can’t stay consistent with any hobby or skill I am learning. You start feeling enthusiastic about a hobby or skill and three weeks into your learning, you lose interest and the learning stops.
The answer is quite obvious.
You need a routine to keep you accountable.
In this article, we will guide you on how to build a consistent routine for learning any skill you want.
1. Build A Schedule
Pick all the tasks you need to perform and create a timeline for each of them.
Instead of writing them out without any time constraints, make sure you allocate how many hours you need to spend on each activity.
For instance, you might build a system following this model.
- Drink water every five minutes
- Write 750 words on any topic at 9:00 AM.
- Learn some new concepts in Python programming.
- Go for a walk
And on and on it goes until you have filled your day with meaningful tasks to perform for the day.
2. Stick To It
The easy part is starting. The hard part is making it a habit.
For example, if you want to build a consistent writing habit, you need to write every single day even for 10 or 15 minutes.
Without that, you would not be able to build the muscle that can help you sustain this habit. That is how habits are built and how you reduce your resistance when venturing into learning any skill.
3. Review And Make Changes To Suit Your Needs.
You have created a plan and decided to stay glued to it.
That is awesome.
However, you should sporadically perform reviews on your schedule to make sure it fits into the whole context of your workflow.
4. Make The learning Process Fun
Any learning done funnily and interestingly is better than viewing it as an arduous task.
Instead of having that perspective, it is better to have fun and enjoy the learning process no matter how long it takes to master.
Every subject has a learning curve. Remember that and make the process exciting and engaging.
