Its simply means mastering small skills , which are an part of a hard skill.Like making an omelette is a micromastery and Cooking in general is a Skill.Got it .

MY FIRST OMELLETE IN APRIL 2019.

Learning has become so rare these days. Have you ever thought how many skills are there to learn in this world ?

If you are a student you are most probably wasting time in …rote learning for percentages/social media/parties etc.

If you are working then you are dashing from 9 -5 , but what do you do next?

2. WHY TO LEARN NEW THINGS ?

1 . WANNA BE HAPPY : Learning new things will make you happy !! As when you learn something new , dopamine is released , making you feel awesome!

2 . You get 1 life. That’s it !! Do you want to waste this life doing just one thing, paying bills OR do you want to explore this earth , master small things and grow your mind ?

Do you know why Nobel Laureates are at least 2 times more likely to be photographers , 4 times more l;likely to be musicians ,17 times more likely to be artists , 25 times more likely to be writers as compared to typical scientists !?!

Learning new things will make you creative by gaining different perspectives . .As your mind stores more ideas, new ideas will emanate like a beautiful waterfall.

This sounds too good to be true, but the reality is this method has been used since ages!!

4 .REWARDING CAREER: As you try out new skills, you will feel like some skills feel awesome to you , moreover, those skills have high demand in market. You will never know before you try !!

5 . BOOST CONFIDENCE : When you will be equipped with plethora of skills, your self esteem will sky rocket. You will sparkle. You will take challenges of your life head on.

6. GOOD FOR YOUR PLASTIC BRAIN : The more you master new skills, your brain will become impregnable . You will become more smarter.

Brain’s plasticity is a physical process.The more you use it , it becomes better.The less you use it , its efficacy plummets.

I went to a shop, bought 2 bread packet, each of $27. The guy couldn’t compute 27 *2 .

He used a calculator for this. See , this guy is dependent on calculator, hence everytime when hew wants to add up numbers,he uses it.

His brain’s power is decreasing .

7 . PRODUCE OR CONSUME : Learning new things switches us to a more productive view of life. Our perception of life changes.

Say suppose , If you decide to learn coding one day . Then as you learn , the next time you use Instagram you wonder how much coding is done for this app.

You dream of making your own apps!! You now start to produce !!

3.WHAT LED ME TO LEARNING NEW SKILLS?

HEY, THIS IS ME!

I had no interest in learning skills. I didn’t knew the importance of skills.

The biggest reason I used as an silly excuse which I think you too might be using, is….

I HATE LEARNING THINGS WHICH I DON’T LIKE OR IN WHICH I HAVE NO INTEREST.

BY YOU AND ME !!

BUT WHAT IF THAT SKILL HAS PLETHORA OF BENEFITS AND ITS SHINING IN MARKET, MEANS ITS IN GREAT DEMAND ?

I SAW ONE VIDEO ON YOUTUBE, WHICH CHANGED MY LIFE. IT TAUGHT ME INDIRECTLY TO LEARN SKILLS !! The principle was …

3.1 DON’T FOLLOW YOUR PASSION , INSTEAD TAKE YOUR PASSION WITH YOU !!

It Sounds so counter-intuitive , but damn, its true. You can read my blog don’t follow your passion .

new skills to learn list

The crux of that blog is , you need to try out stuff which has high demand in market, even though the work doesn’t ignite you! Even though its not your passion!

So, When I understood this , My whole perception altered and I was able to see the big picture.

I stopped giving shitty excuses to myself, and I started learning new thing like SUDOKU,DRAWING AND much more . I will talk about it in coming paragraphs.

But the most striking fact that I unearthed was that I started to enjoy drawing, even though I hated it!!

It just shows that , we don’t really try out new things as we make assumptions about our likes and dislikes , which turn out to be wrong in most times.

Or we Think about our past experiences to measure our capabilities. But you should know..

CAPACITY IS A STATE OF MIND !!!


We can learn any skill, if we are ready mentally .

The big picture is that , Successful people, millionaires, Billionaires don’t just do one thing !! They also learn new skills to give them the benefits which we saw earlier.

IF YOU UNDERSTAND ‘DON’T FOLLOW YOUR PASSION’ YOU WILL BECOME A LIFELONG LEARNER.

The earlier you realize this truth , the better fro you as you will have more time to learn something new. If you are a student in your School OR College days, you are damn lucky 🙂

Deconstruct it .
Break a particular skill into smaller parts.


Let’s take an example:

Suppose you want to learn Muscle Up !!
