There are two basic modes of learning, which are quite different in their essence. We call those “Discovery” and “Acquisition”. Both of them require a bit different approaches and environment to enhance and speed up your learning.
If you do not know exactly what you should learn, or you don’t have a specific goal, you are in a discovery mode.
If you know exactly what you need to learn, you are in an acquisition mode.
