Often our and not only our advice can lead you to think about changing the type of activity, about finding a new direction for applying your forces and about learning something new and unknown to you in principle. Everyone probably has accumulated their own experience in mastering new material, and we suggest you familiarize yourself with the Dustin Wax tips on this topic. So, how to approach a new topic?

I’m a noob

  • Google
    Yes, those who send you with your questions to the search are not so wrong, the search page brings a lot of useful things in the right hands. But in order to ask a question correctly, you need to know at least something, and Wikipedia can come to the rescue here. Often the best source of knowledge can be a book, especially an electronic one, so do not forget to search for ebook or e-book or filetype:pdf for such purposes. Another good way to get information is to look at the forum on the topic you want to do.
  • Library and bookstore
    Yes, books are still relevant both for deep immersion in the topic and for obtaining a basic set of knowledge, so you are unlikely to be able to do without them. Electronic versions are convenient for their search and accessibility as a reference, but there is nothing better than a good old book for a full-fledged reading.
  • Take a closer look at the logs
    Do not bypass the shelf with the press: thematic magazines contain much more recent information than books on the same topic.
  • Find an expert
    Having tried the previous methods, you should have already understood who are recognized experts in this topic, if you are lucky, such an expert runs his blog or website and you will be able to get information firsthand.
  • Ask for help
    You have found an expert, now you can politely and respectfully ask him to help you deal with the difficulties you have encountered, and you can use not only e-mail, but also new services like Twitter or social networks.
  • Write about it
    Even if no one ever reads what you write about this topic, the very fact of creating the text will show you where there are gaps and inaccuracies, which parts you need to develop and which ones to concretize.
  • Do
    You won't really start studying until you put your knowledge into practice. Read theory and practice, it will help you find out what kind of knowledge you lack and how well you know the topic.
  • Join a group, join a club
    Discussions and disputes are a good way to understand the material, understand its cons and pros, and see the direction of development.
  • Start a blog
    A constant reflection of your achievements and failures would help in the case of a simple diary, but a blog will allow you to help others master the topic and not step on your rake. Moreover, making mistakes in public will make you learn faster by involving other competent people in discussions and advice.
  • Take your time
    It's not worth biting off more than you can swallow at a time. Do not think that tomorrow you will wake up as an expert — accumulate knowledge and skills, allowing more experienced ones to guide you until you feel that you are able to make balanced and correct decisions yourself.
