Combining Theory And Application

I’m fairly certain that you don’t need any more convincing to become a polymath.

So instead of harping on the “whys,” we can get down to the “hows” of becoming a polymath.

This will involve stretching your mind and starting from ground zero in at least one new discipline or realm of knowledge.

It will be a tedious, tiring, and frustrating process.

But it will be less of those things if you have a proper plan in place.

Thus, we come to a 10-step process on learning a new subject from scratch.

 Actually, the title of each step is fairly descriptive to the process itself:

o Gain a broad overview.

o Narrow the scope of your desired knowledge or skill.

o Define what success means to you and work backwards to establish a plan of attack.

o Compile the resources—focus on quantity here.

o Create a curriculum and study plan based on all the resources you’ve collected.

o Filter and curate the resources you’ve found based on what you want to achieve.
