Have you ever thought about applying your Agile knowledge to learn something you want?
Want to learn how to play an instrument? Want to learn a new language? Want to know how to juggle balls?
Whatever is the new skill you are willing to learn, believe me: Agile can help you with it.
In our life, we often face the need of learning something new. Sometimes it’s for the job. Sometimes to impress the person we love. Sometimes it’s simply for fun, as a new hobby… Whatever is the reason, we know this knowledge/skill can be challenging to acquire and it cannot (yet) be downloaded straight into our brain. We still need to read books, to study, to follow classes and lessons, to do researches, to practice and of course: be patient, because the learning curve might be very slow…
In order to accelerate this learning process, many techniques and tricks have been created along the years. And as I’m one of these people who are always trying to learn something new and excited to see results as fast as possible, I’m always looking for these tricks and methods to support me in the learning process. And in this pursuit for ways to learn faster and faster, my attention was caught, in special, by one of these methods.
It’s not a complicated method. In fact, it’s basically 5 simple steps and I’ll share this technique with the audience. You may ask me: “Ok, nice. But what’s the relation with Agile?”.
That’s exactly the reason why this method caught my attention: it’s incredibly similar to Agile values, principles and practices! You will be surprised! And I don’t know about you, but the Waterfall-style learning scares me a lot!
Thus, if you know what Agile is about, you are halfway to use it in your favor to learn anything you want, fast.
