T. Harv Eker, best selling author of “Secrets of a Millionaire Mind”, says “What you hear you forget, what you see you remember, what you do you understand.”
Whilst we all learn differently and at different speeds, with different levels and depth of understanding, Harv’s abovementioned quote certainly rings very true in my world.
That said, I think there are a whole host of additional ingredients that need to be looked at and added to the mix.
For example, if the topic at hand is not one that I am passionate about, I will most definitely not remember anything I have heard or read and in all likelihood even if I do manage to “do”, I will probably abandon it for something else entirely – preferably something that I am interested in or passionate about.
The reality of course is that there is so much information out there. So much to choose from, so much that is pure unadulterated drivel, that it is often quite a mission to find what you need to be looking at, never mind remembering and eventually understanding.
For me the challenge is finding the correct information about what it is that I want to learn “how to” do and then reading that, putting a plan of action in place and then doing it.
For me it is about having to kiss several ugly frogs before I find the handsome Prince.
Always . . . remember to be consistently persistent in your quest to find that little jewel of information and, don’t forget to have fun!
