If this is the case then a way that I went about it is hanging out on LQ regularly. I regularly visit the Zero reply threads (Quick Links > Zero Reply Threads
in the forum menu). From there I find threads in which I want to know more about or topics that interest me. Then I subscribe to them by clicking on Thread Tools > Subscribe to this Thread
. When you subscribe to threads you can regularly check if anyone has replied to them in My LQ
in the forum menu. Usually people start replying within a day or two (sometimes sooner). If nobody replies to a thread I'm interested in then I simply google around or look up the documentation on a project website depending on the type of information a person wants to know. I'll read the documentation, find an answer, and then link the answer to the person so they can read it too.
By doing that I can regularly view real world problems that other people regularly have and I'm able to start comprehending what common troubleshooting strategies people use to try to solve them (or help other people solve them). In this regard, LinuxQuestions.org has been the best learning resource for me to learn about GNU/Linux. Sometimes forum members have links to cool articles or neat little command tips which also help.
So basically, you just put a lot of time into it and eventually stuff starts to click and fall into place.
