How do I learn?

  • Go deep into the topics you want to learn spending also extra time to understand one single concept. Here, something must be clarified: “go deep” does not mean to exhaust yourself to the limit and this is based on one simple and (I think) very important point: it is you who set the learning schedule and this means that you do not have constraints on your own project! Personally speaking, I had a sort of agenda that I followed but, sometimes, I was not really in the mood of doing anything, and for that reason, I simply took a day off with no regrets because I knew I needed some extra time for myself. After that, I found again the same enthusiasm I had before.
  • Add a practical approach to anything you learn. Some concepts, whatever they are, need something further to be completely understood. Personally speaking, I found a continuous practice really helpful especially with concepts that I have never seen before (e.g., Decision Trees or Random Forest models in Machine Learning).
