I came across this article by James Altucher just now on BoingBoing. It’s a quick and clever read about what you need to do to learn something new. A key point seems to be that it’s important to do something you love, and in doing so, treat it like you love it. Click here to read it, and I’d suggest you also subscribe to BoingBoing, as they have interesting content.
There’s a good message here for us as trainers, I think, in looking at how we structure our training to help people learn something new.
