Are You A Learning Machine?
"You can never learn less, you can only learn more."~R. Buckminster Fuller
Do you realize that you were created as a learning machine? That if you allow yourself, you could be constantly learning? What is something that is stopping you from learning?
It's those 3 most dreaded words in the English language..."I know that." Or, "I already know that."
Each time you use those words, you are cutting off learning. Even if you do already know that, let the experience continue, because there is always something that you may have not known about if you don't cut yourself off from learning. Always!
An old mentor of mine once told me that you could hear something 99 times, but on the 100th, as long as you were listening, it might make more sense to you, allow for deeper understanding, or just plain hit you right between the eyes with the truth that you thought you already knew!
How often do you say that, "I know that." Make it your goal to take those words, in that sequence, out of your vocabulary. It inhibits learning, stifles the mind and just makes you plain boring...
Always take the opportunity to learn more...because you can't learn less.
Know. Be Known. Make A Difference!
