Best way to learn ?

Hello All.
What in your opinion is the easiest way to or or how did you learn to read the skies ? I read the books and look on the net.When i get out there it all looks so different or things dont't seem to be where they should !!
I find myself just pointing at the stars and hoping,general finding nothing.Bad practice i know.
