Welcome back from -- a perfect state to speaking a different language what -- you could become world class at any skill you wish to learn.
In a short time.
Four hour work week -- -- and human Guinea pig and Tim -- said he's got the recipe for success and he's -- up and served in his new.
Well before our -- -- great to have you with us think you've got to me a bit of this book but but that the rules knock somebody you know while I view all sorts of -- not just looking what did you focus but it.
-- focus on cooking because my readers been asking me for book on accelerated learning for five years or so now and cooking was one of the skills that had beaten me.
Over and over and over -- -- quit because it was inconvenient to too much time whenever my -- I thought what better way to show how the world's fastest learners learn than to tackle this thing that'd be -- So many times before.
I've been fascinated by you for years because there's something about your personality that says look I stink at this thing and I want to fix it whether it's.
Learning a language can speaking languages that you know he decided to learn what like twenty languages -- -- and she became a world record breaking tainted answer you couldn't even put on dance shoes before how do you do that.
The first step that I take and that I teach people to take is looking for people who are good at something you shouldn't be so you find notes -- 250 pound guy Iran's ultra marathons or you find.
The 35 year old who becomes a world class swim coach who couldn't swim before hand and then you look at what they're doing that other people are not just.
And you can apply that to learning a language in its twelve weeks let's -- looking at Michelle Thomas MI CH EL whose intelligence officer in Europe.
And you can apply to chess.
If it applies to just about everything language is a big -- -- people always get those programs that they learn Spanish or French or whatever it may be.
How should you learn to speak -- language and a short period of time I wanna learn -- the first thing you have to do.
Is -- the 20% of material -- even less for language it's like 2% that would give you 80% or more of the results of for instance you'll have to learn about 12100 words.
To be functionally -- -- -- -- language so it's finding those words first and foremost and there's a a great company called visit and yes -- -- -- that.
That offers systems flash cards but that applies -- everything you find the 20% that matters most of whatever it is you want to -- and also say deconstruction.
What does that man so the deconstruction is breaking -- big skill like learning Spanish saying.
We're tango down into smaller pieces swimming like how -- the arms -- -- -- legs.
And then removing the failure points of kick I couldn't swim for thirty years -- -- it's embarrassing.
So I had to find a method that took out kicking because that always -- makes a total Immersion was.
And then there are others say yeah now about picking.
I swim with just a tiny little flick of each foot and don't get tired that's really what those do right I mean they -- it also means mostly in your arms you also -- selection so this is what kind of eliminate get me the get rid of the things like you know language that you don't need to focus on what you need exactly and so that applies to let's say cooking where you choose the methods that you can.
Mess up the most but still get amazing results like brazen for instance the first dress be in the book is actually possible -- It is easier to make for four people and -- -- for one person won't like you -- to choose the right method.
It's easier to make.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So -- we are the -- learning process steps three is sequencing -- for -- stakes in this book before our ship you can even learn the Michelin.
-- -- bathroom sink meal -- if there's a man of many talents.
They probably don't have any questions -- T pharos on Twitter we'll try to answer for it thanks Tim appreciate you joining us I guess on the run out of.
