Default Keeping focus?

I'm looking for something to devote my time into in hopes of mastering it. I hate switching from one focus to another because I want to do so many things with limited free time so I was curious on what you guys would do. My thoughts right now would be on learning a language, how to draw, SC2 to pro level, and baking. Assume that you have enough free time and money to achieve whatever you want to pursue.

Additionally, what strategies would you employ to keep yourself on track?

Like Lyn (and kind of Flip lol) said, I would go with baking too! I've always wanted to learn another language though, so maybe that too? o: You could like.. learn a language and maybe one day travel there! That would be great :]

I'd like to learn languages, really. That being said, I know for a fact I don't have the mind to do it, let alone the dedication. It's never stuck for me, that's all.

I'm not procrastinating, I'm in a Spanish class in college right now. It literally just won't stick, I study and study but I can't remember anything.

Learn how to play the piano or guitar.

Focus? My motivation. Some day I'll be able to play all those songs I like so much. :>

I'd say befriend someone who's a pro at whatever you wanna learn, shadow them, leech off a tip/trick or two of the craft. Once you're confident enough engage in some friendly competition with them. And work at eventually beating 'em.

It's like being a Sith apprentice. Sooner or later you gotta show your master who the real master is, mang.

I'd say pick one thing you wanna learn and think how much time you can (reasonably) devote for it every day. Then do just that. If it stops being a choice whether you wanna do it or not, and becomes a part of your everyday routine, it'll be easier to keep at it. Be consistent, don't give up even if it feels like you're not getting any better. If you keep learning and practicing every day, there's no way you won't eventually get good. It'll just take time.

Works for me with language learning 8U

Language is one of those things where it's almost literally, you got it or you don't.

I took my first language class in 8th grade (Spanish) and I never had to try to get it, it ended up being that class that was always an auto-A, so long as I paid attention in class.


I would personally select learning a new language, but if it's the kind of thing that just never seems to want to stick, a lot of immersion will probably be necessary to act as that adhesive element.

I had a kid who went all the way through to Spanish 4 and still didn't get a lot of it, and felt he would never really get it, so he decided to stop (and he completed the required language courses to graduate High School).



Just... don't get discourage if you choose to learn a language. It requires a lot of listening, conversing, reading, and full-on immersion (take a trip to a Spanish speaking country) to really get it a lot of the times. The people who a superfluent in classes are just those types that get it.

If I had enough time and money I would:

- Get trained to become a missionary, preferably head out to places where Christianity usually cannot reach - China, North Korea etc

- Go to 3rd world countries and spread the love

Basically living my dream!
