About This Class

I’m Mike Boyd, filmmaker and Educational YouTuber, and in this class, I’m going to teach you everything I know about how to master the skills you have always wanted to learn.

Over the last 3 years, I’ve learned 50 new skills from scratch as part of my “Learn Quick” series on YouTube. Many people have joined me for the journey, with my channel surpassing 100+ million views and 1 million subscribers.

Throughout those years, I kept a journal of what works, what doesn’t, and what helps me learn skills efficiently and quickly. This class is a product of that research: my class on how to “Learn Quick” yourself!

This class is for anyone, any age, who wants to learn something new, reduce their likelihood of quitting a new challenge, or get good at something faster. From my personal learning process to tips on how to deal with the dip in the learning curve, I hope to provide you with impactful and actionable techniques that you can employ immediately to see real results and progress towards your goals.

In this 40-minute class, you’ll learn to:

  • Cultivate passion
  • Practice efficiently
  • Deal with frustration
  • Train your brain the most effective way
  • Develop strategies to reduce your likelihood of quitting
  • Self-diagnose issues

Let’s get started!
