THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH YEARS IN OUR LIVES IN ORDER TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THAT WE NEED TO KNOW IN ORDER TO SURVIVE, LET ALONE BE SUCCESSFUL. THIS IS WHY WE LEVERAGE OUR LIMITED TIME AND KNOWLEDGE BY READING EXCELLENT BOOKS, WRITTEN BY AUTHORS WHO HAVE EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE, AND TALENT. WE ALSO LISTEN TO AND SPEAK WITH THOSE WITH THESE SAME CHARACTERISTICS. WE EXPOSE OURSELVES, AND HOPEFULLY ABSORB, YEARS OF KNOWLEDGE WITHIN A FEW MINUTES TO A FEW HOURS. IF WE CHOOSE, WE DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE MISTAKES OR SUFFER UNNECESSARILY, WHEN WE AVAIL OURSELVES OF THE HARD-WON KNOWLEDGE OF OTHERS, WHOM WE TRUST.

One pivotal decision is knowing what to read and to whom to listen. Another significant decision is when to read, or listen to, contrarian information or contrarian views. Maybe we should be listening to contrarian information all the time? Reading and listening to contrarian views may change our minds, or may help us strengthen theContinue reading “THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH YEARS IN OUR LIVES IN ORDER TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THAT WE NEED TO KNOW IN ORDER TO SURVIVE, LET ALONE BE SUCCESSFUL.

IT IS UNSETTLING TO QUESTION EVERYTHING THAT WE THINK THAT WE KNOW. EVEN IF WE CONCLUDE THAT OUR UNDERSTANDINGS WERE ALREADY CORRECT, THERE IS AN ENORMOUS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TAKING RESPONSIBILITY AND COMING TO OUR OWN CONCLUSIONS, VERSUS, BLINDLY PARROTING AND ACCEPTING WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT.

THIS STATEMENT IS FALSE,”WE LEARN PRIMARILY THROUGH ONE OF THESE, FOUR DIFFERENT STYLES: VISUAL, AUDITORY, READ-WRITE, AND KINESTHETIC (VARK).”

In order to learn and understand, many domains require that we incorporate multiple senses and several methods. For example, driving a car, cooking, baking, and playing baseball, all are most easily learned with the use of vision, hearing, and movement. Theoretical physics and applied math are more easily learned with the use of vision andContinue reading “THIS STATEMENT IS FALSE,”WE LEARN PRIMARILY THROUGH ONE OF THESE, FOUR DIFFERENT STYLES: VISUAL, AUDITORY, READ-WRITE, AND KINESTHETIC (VARK).””
