“What’s that?” you may say, “Learn to learn? But I’m already up to my neck in learning! Math, Science, English, History, Geography and anything else anyone supposes I must know before facing the world!”
It’s not just about triumphantly handing in your answer paper a half hour early or racing to see who solves that abstruse algebra problem first or who finishes reading that passage first or who bisects that angle first. There will be times when you shoot off into the race only to realize you have no idea what to do! It’s okay if you look at the algebra problem and feel like you have a 3yearold’s brain or reach the end of the passage with still no idea what the author is trying to say or have no clue why we use the compass to draw those little arcs. We all start off knowing nothing. (So did Einstein).The good news is we can only get better. Sure, there’s going to be discomfort in not knowing, in failing but if you understand that this discomfort is what precedes ‘understanding’ and get comfortable with that discomfort then there’s no end to what you can learn.
