I remember when I used to do this to a lesser extent. need to start it up again!
Answer by Jeff Nelson:
One habit I've clung to is writing small prototypes when I'm trying to learn new concepts.
For example, I'll sit down with a book or a web page, and over the course of a few hours, write 30 or 40 programs all of them only a few dozen lines long. Each program intended to demonstrate some simple concept.
This prototyping makes it very easy to try out many concepts in a short period of time.
