Learning a new skill is just building the right habits.

Its harder than it sounds because its not clear which habits are good or bad.

Nor is it clear which advice is well intentioned but not helpful.

It would be much easier if each activity (whether its coding, writing, running or baking), came with a starters guide of habits.

E.g for writing it might include:

1. The habit of getting words down on the page no matter how bad.
2. The habit of finding good proof readers.
3. The habit of editing correctly your self.

Have you seen any intros to a skill that take this sort of approach instead of dumping information on you?
