Personal Environment Aids In Skill Acquisition

By Derek Neighbors, Published on September 7, 2021

Environment effects so much of our ability to be successful. One place it makes a difference that often is overlooked is accelerating in skills acquisition.

Things you can do to create an environment conducive to building skills you want.

  1. Identify your goals: The first step is to clearly identify the skills you want to build, and set specific and measurable goals for yourself. This will help you focus your efforts and stay motivated.
  2. Find a supportive community: It can be helpful to surround yourself with people who are also interested in building the same skills as you. This could be in the form of a study group, a club, or an online forum. Having a supportive community can provide encouragement, accountability, and a source of ideas and resources.
  3. Create a dedicated space: It can be helpful to have a dedicated space where you can work on building your skills. This could be a physical space, like a dedicated room or a quiet corner of your home, or it could be a virtual space, like a shared online document or a dedicated chat room.
  4. Set aside dedicated time: Make sure to set aside dedicated time on a regular basis to work on your skills. This could be a few hours a week or a specific block of time each day. It’s important to be consistent and make sure you have enough time to make progress.
  5. Seek out resources and materials: There are many resources and materials available that can help you build your skills. These could include books, online courses, workshops, or videos. Look for resources that align with your goals and that have a good reputation.
  6. Be patient and persistent: Building new skills takes time and effort. It’s important to be patient and persistent, and to stay motivated even when you encounter challenges or setbacks. It can also be helpful to track your progress and celebrate your accomplishments along the way.

Why does the quality of environment matter so much?

The quality of the environment can have a significant impact on your ability to acquire skills. A supportive and conducive environment provides the resources, support, and motivation that are necessary for learning and skill development. On the other hand, a poor-quality environment can be a barrier to learning and skill acquisition. Your environment is either aiding you or hindering you in your goals.
