How To Learn

This morning I finally finished working on something that I told myself I’d do way back in February, which was writing an article about how to learn.

Being in the education/coaching field for the past 10 years has really allowed me to see that there is a big difference between what we think is learning and actual learning.

In many instances we believe that we are learning when we’re really just taking in information yet retaining very little of it. Learning how the mind works really gives a new meaning to the phrase “in one ear and out the other.”

Although learning is up to the recipient, as a teacher I feel as if it’s my job to distribute content in a way that makes it easier for the student to learn.

What’s funny is that I’ve purposely avoided the subject of psychology my entire life due to some issues that I have with my mom. She was a psychology professor and I swore I would never teach or dig too deep into that subject. But low and behold that’s exactly what I’ve become. A teacher who has put a massive emphasis on psychology in order to have the biggest impact on those receiving my messages.

I’ve yet to finish my article at the time of writing this but hopefully you’ll be seeing in on Entrepreneur.com sooner than later.
