Hey, I want to send a registered letter, the time of receipt is 6 years later, the title is: Let me in 6 years, double the return.

A while ago, a friend’s child, graduated from elementary school, studied for 6 years, then came to study in junior high school, suddenly felt junior high school and high school together is also 6 years, 2 6 years can also be said to be the transformation of student life, of course, there are universities and master’s degree, also 6 years, three 6 years, let us distinguish the path of study into three stages, basic, learning, comprehensive.
When we enter the workplace after graduation, the workplace is a place for people to develop their talents. Like a newbie leaving the newbie village, we go to the outside world to fight monsters, brush experience value, get treasure box, make friends with God teammates, etc. At the same time, we may overlook a problem. At the same time, we may overlook a question: do we have a strategy phase plan for ourselves?
We need a strategy plan for our life or workplace with the theme: let’s double back in six years.
We believe in learning to be reborn — for us, seven years is a lifetime,” says Lee Xiaolai, author of the best-selling book, “Make Time Your Friend. Every lifetime is spent acquiring at least one important skill that leads to an irreversible rebirth.
We enter the workplace by learning by doing and gaining experience. At the same time, Wan Weigang says in his book “You Have Your Own Plan, the World Has Another Plan”: “Practice can determine your maturity, but reading can determine your pattern. To use the concept of the Novice Village, rehearsal increases your experience, and reading increases your level. We still need to raise our ego level, 6 years of learning the right way to do things, to make the right things keep happening, and for that we need to keep paying attention to it.
Start with self-study
When we graduate, it’s like having an up-to-date mobile operating system installed in our brains that has corresponding apps (i.e. the subject skills you have learned). These apps are needed in the workplace and you will find that some apps are useful, some apps are not compatible and some apps are not available.
At this point, you need to download the appropriate apps. Before downloading, we should want to know our status, and here are 3 questions we can ask ourselves.
In his Geek Time column “10x Programmer’s Work Method”, Zheng Ye, Chief Architect of Firecoin.com, once organized a training for new graduates, in which there was a brainstorming session “Imagine the Future”, and I would ask people to think about three questions.
What level am I at now?
What level do I want to reach?
How will I get to that goal?
After gaining an understanding of your own situation, the next step is to learn on your own, to supplement or create an app that you need, for self-study, I personally recommend these 3 things.
Manage time, treat time as a friend, and use tools to collaborate.
Repeat the cycle, prep, then come back to learn, and finally review.
Practice, Just do it , just go for it.
1. manage time….
Mobile app upgrades take time to download and install, we learn skills on our own, and time takes a 6 year cycle.
Time needs to be managed and scheduled so that we know what to do. Use tools to manage your time, for example, use the Tomato Work Clock to kickstart your focus. Project lists so you know what to do. Make forms and schedule study time to learn on your own.
There are many more tools or model frameworks that you can use, apply existing frameworks so that you can get started right away and then fix and adjust to improve, for time, we need to schedule it before we can use it.
Manage your time properly and make time a partner with you. These 3 tools are first recommended for you to use.
1 A tomato work clock to kick-start your focus.
2 Project lists so you know what to do.
3 Make tables to schedule study time.
Repetition, as mentioned in the book “You have a plan, the world has another plan”, is a repetitive process of learning, which is monotonous and uninteresting, and not pleasant.
For example, when we memorize English words, it is difficult to memorize them all at once, but we have to repeat them over and over again. Self-learning is tough because learning a new skill is out of the comfort zone. Repetition, and another concept is that our memorization curve decreases over time, for example, if you learn the first lesson on the first day, then on the seventh day you have to repeat the first lesson again to impress your brain’s memory.
Pre-study, to give the brain first exposure to new knowledge; study, to do hands-on work to gain experience value; and review, to review the event for self-examination. Repeat these processes to keep the experience value going and to create a connection between the brain and the skill, from novice to skilled.
Practice is an important concept that Lee laughs at in his book “New Life — Seven Years is a Lifetime”, and it is only practice that will improve your skills. For example, if we want to fight monsters to upgrade, then we have to go out of the newbie village to encounter monsters, and different monsters will have different experience values to gain.
Trample is to beat the monsters in our life to get the experience value or treasure chest, and then proceed to the next level. The concept of mapping, which can be applied to a programming concept, is called minimum viable solution, or mpv for short.
Practice MVP, learn by doing, and then you’ll see what the problem is. Pay attention to what feedback is given and in what way you can improve evolve your practice.
Just do it , just go for it and practice practicing it, you need to push forward towards it, only do it.
Sometimes you have more to lose by not making a decision than by making the wrong decision, and the same goes for practicing , sometimes you lose your future better self by not acting. Practice, minimum viable product execution, starts with simplifying what is feasible.
So I became convinced that everyone has the potential to improve, it’s just a matter of whether or not you give up, and if you don’t, then at most the degree of progress will vary. Excerpt from: Xiaolai Li. “Seven years of new life is a lifetime.
Each stage of life is like climbing a staircase, climbing up the stairs to reach a certain floor, and each floor has a different style and scenery, and the number of stairs is given as 6 years.
We have to make our own arrangements to grow in all aspects, what we need in our work and what we need in our life. For example, we face the difficulties in performing tasks in our work, and we face the problems in our life such as getting married, buying a house, having children and so on.
Take a 6 year cycle to chart your own graph, manage your time properly, and make time a partner with you. Go into new areas, get exposed to new ideas, and keep your skills up-to-date forever, like the app store on your phone, which puts out a topic-related app every day for you to download and play with.
Here is a review of 3 suggestions for self-learning.
1. Manage time, treat time as a friend, and use tools to collaborate.
2. Repeat the cycle, prep, then come back to learn, and finally review.
3.Just do it, is to do it.
Let’s make a 6 year pact in this present moment to gain skills through mutual agreement to learn on your own to keep you up to date and renewed.
Now write a registered letter to yourself, and send it to you in the future with a poem and a faraway place, in 6 years’ time, titled: Let me return the favor in 6 years’ time.
