Under ideal conditions this is the order in which you would learn, primarily from learning the core skills first so that you can use them to do a much better job on the other areas.  If you need to go back to do "remedial" learning, then you'll need to prioritize that based on what has the highest priority - which means biggest payoff on your life.  "Plugging the gaps" (i.e. "remedial learning") is explained in Mastery Learning - Not Allowing Cumulative Misunderstandings, Misknowing & Missings To Continue.  Being impatient and not taking sufficient time to learn sabotages the process.

Know that these are most often learned in layers, at first at a quicker and more elementary level, and then refined and added to over time - but as soon as possible for that will affect the quality of our lives, plus it will free up huge amounts of time (after subtracting the learning time!) to live life at a higher level!

I'll repeat the objectiveTo be:  Very effective and powerful in life
                                                    Unconditionally happy
                                                    Virtually stress-free and anxiety free all day

Instructions:  They follow after the "what to learn" boxes, below.

It takes 10,000 hours to master a craft or a subject.  Spend that on your craft, but you must also spend that on learning life at a higher and higher level - and your payoff will be greater and greater as you go - and you'll be more and more ahead in hours freed up compared to hours being used for learning - plus you'll have alot fewer problems and much smaller problems .  (We have more than 12,500 hours every decade to do this, after accounting for work hours and life.).

As your learning program for the details, you would use the programs for any one area, so that you have a systematic order of what to do within each area.  Of course, you can modify it to suit you better.  Some people like to work "top down", which is feasible if you also go down and learn at a deeper level over the long term.  (See Checklists For Running Life.)

The best order to do this in IF there is sufficient time is:

You would do the basic level of learning first to get up to speed to basically function and then learn what it takes to have basic mastery. [For now, you'll have to enter the descriptions in the boxes into the search engine, in the sitemap, to find the next thing to work on (in the box).]

Alternative I:

  Follow the alternative path to get the quickest highest payoffs, returning to fill in by using the order
  If there are some very high priorities, you might go directly to those, but you'll have to back track at
    times because if you're missing a key concept that is earlier on in the order of learning you might
    fail to understand the concepts based on that one.  See: Mastery Learning.
Alternative II

1.  Learn core life skills. (See box.)
2.  Learn the "necessary understanding, knowledge".  (See box.)
3.  Begin first level of "necessary implementation" (see box), possibly while working on the most important area of all at the same time (or not), which is on the next line. 
4.  Correct and create great "core beliefs". (See box.)
5.  Develop great core perspectives with which to live a great life.  (See box.)
6.  Develop the habit of "using the higher brain" by doing the higher brain functions regularly, which are just the core skills being used via our life-given ability to learn and think .  (See box.)
7.  Complete the items not yet mastered that would appear to have the highest payoff.
8.  Continue until you achieve the objective of this all, named at the beginning of this page.

If there are urgencies

1.  Prioritize what is most important.  List them in order and attack them in that order.
2.  Handle them as far as what is most urgent, but do not make the mistake of not going back to cure the cause itself - or you'll have more urgencies.  (People who have lots of urgencies have not dealt with and cured the causes!  Duh!)
3.  Learn what the misunderstandings, misbeliefs, and misknowings were and fill those in.  Most often that is involved in the second major box:  Necessary Understanding, Knowledge.  Don't skip this step!!!  (Mastery Learning - Not Allowing Cumulative Misunderstandings, Misknowing & Missings To Continue.)

(Huge payoffs!)

Product: With these you can do anything.

Learning in stages:  1st learn elementary basics for the highest payoff and so you are functioning, later go back and hone the skills.

The skills:

Learning (esp. learning how to learn)

Effective thinking (fact verification, logic)

Which lead to:

Good decisions (and fewer problems)

Good problem solving (Almost no problems; no big problems)

Prerequisite: First we have to 1. know how the brain works and how to do basic critical thinking - or we can't do this well.

1. Identify beliefs that
   don't work
2. Apply critical
   thinking to form
   new, true beliefs.
3. Install the beliefs
   so they are

You are not done until all core beliefs are corrected and true.


Seeing the abundance in 
  reality (not Pollyanna)
Sufficient certainty
Responsibility vs. being a victim
No blame, no fault
    The growth mindset
Positive, realistic self view
Realistic view of life, people, the world

Distinctions as to what is important and not as important (Prioritizing (& choosing what not to do &/or not be concerned about)

Without these, you cannot get good enough results:

How the body works
How the brain works
       Fears, stress
      Real threats
What produces
The role of habits
Rules of life,
  principles, laws
Basic realities of
  human behavior
(Available and capable)

Planning, using schedules  

Analyzing (critical thinking)


Problem solving

Time/Productivity management skills

Set up support systems, people

Social skills

Identify, learn from models, examples

Golden hour

Financial basics

Physical rules, schedules, exercise, nutrition, restoration

Excellent shedule, balanced

Learning plan  .

Write out:

What I want in life
    My values
Credos, rules, codes
Philosophy of life - 
  get it straight and
Set of "statements to
  say" in key
Beliefs, by area

Develop value-producing skill that is valued by the market (and paid highly), which fits with your values and motivations
