I'm sure you've learnt many things in life, including how to say 'Hi'. Well, congrats that's something you learnt on your own!!! Ever wondered how you did it? Or even why you did it??? When did "Goo goo gaa gaa" become 'Hi' (No I am not going to go into behavioral learning or anything)
We've been taught many things in life - how to speak, how to read, how to write, how to do math, how to drive a car, how to bungee jump etc. Ever wondered why nobody ever taught you how to learn???
I know I needed to learn how to learn. Somethings are best learnt in certain ways and some in others..
These are some ways in which I discovered learning takes place in day to day life
1) Sleep on it - You never know what you might remember the next day and surprise yourself with what you actually learnt!
2)Observe.Break Down.Analyze.Integrate - This involves the left brain and can be applied to anything you want to learn but have no clue about
3)Observe.Observe.Observe - Let your subconscious do the learning for you. Like learning to ride a bike for example. There are no textbook on how to do it. You just DO IT, the max you can do is to observe a few riders.
4)Fake It Till You Make It Style - Keep doing things in a nOObish way, till one day you realise that you actually are good at it, yeah and you'll also remember the very many insults that people threw at you all the way (Now this isn't really a way to learn, but what the hell.. its a pretty popular saying!!)
Thats all I have to say for now
The quality of my blogs are deteriorating aren't they?? Hmmm...
