JUST99WORDS: “I learned a lot!” You sure?

“pretty ugly”

“legal brief”

“old news”

“committee decision”

And, “country music.” 🙂

We’re not good at learning because we’ve “mis-learned” what learning is.

Learning is not about showing up.

Learning is not about going to class, memorizing content, passing a test. That’s called “college.”

Learning is not attending a seminar, listening to a speaker, reading a book.
