Learning, Fast and Slow
What did you learn today?
For some, this question is terrifying — but for others, this question is joyful. Learning sparks an array of emotions in people: Wonderful or horrific memories of teachers or events in school; lessons learned from failure or success; a feeling that they are missing something by not learning enough; or, feeling a sense of purpose through their learning. Humans have a deep-rooted desire to learn and grow, becoming an expert in some field. However, we are often at a loss for how to learn; this lack of understanding negatively affects our ability to learn. By understanding the basics of how to learn, you can integrate your current thinking with the lessons from your life experiences — leading to progress for your learning goals.
