This week Jeff from the lost skills podcast joins me to talk about skills. More specifically how to learn them fast. 

As per expected, we chase many rabbits and banter. 

We cover many techniques to quickly learn new skills. 

To begin with, we talk about setting skill-based goals for the year. And to make them smart goals. 

To be a smart goal it has to be timely, measurable and achievable.

Do not set a goal to become a master woodworker this week. You will fail. Miserable.

I like to set goals in quarterly intervals. So every three months. And to make them small and attainable. 

In my case since I do want to get into woodworking, I want to learn the dovetail joint this quarter. 

To measure my success I have to have a decent dovetail joint at the end of the quarter. 

We cover many ways to learn new skills quickly in this podcast. 

Shout Out to Kate for doing the opening this week.

For those of you who have not heard about this the basic premise is for people to learn/ master at least 13 new skills in the year 13. Of course it does not need to end with 2014 and really learning 13 new skills a year is a good number. Although I’ve been slow to sign up I knew when I first heard about this project I would be getting involved. To be honest I planed a personal version of something like this anyway this was just more concrete and has a sexy site to track your progress and brag with friends about. Let me tell you why I think this is a great idea, what I plan on learning this year and why you need to get your ass involved and learn a new skill or 13.
