Now that you are curious to learn and experience everything about it, let’s go:
Step 1 - Information
Collect as much information as possible about the subject of desire and curate it down to their fundamentals. Be minimalist here and write everything down to bullet points with just one clear sentence per.

My personal Example
Step 1 - Collecting Informations
I usualy spend 1 hour to collect everything, another 30 minutes to curate it down to consumable pieces. 10 points are my maximum here.
Step 2 - Curating Sources
10 points with max 10 sources equal to 100 sentences
Step 3 - Understand the Sources
Depending on the subject, this can be a very long list of jargon, phrases, and buzzwords
Step 4 - Put real work in the Process
A fundamental part that I usually involve my family, friends and sometimes clients with. Result can vary. Sometimes the answer is a product.
Step 5 - Do you understand the Goal
This is the most fascinating part for me. It’s the real world result of what you thought and how true that is to the reality.
