Reach - Then Teach
Dear Hannah: LEarning (Thoughts on History) (Repeat 2)
(Original Broadcast: 3-1-2017)
my education began when I finished school.
reflection led to a lot of unlearning and relearning.
i realized that i was presented
facts disguised as knowledge,
opinions disguised as fact,
and a whole lot of memorized processes
disguised as problem solving.
it's all good, though - 'cause now I know
... that i don't know.
so i value divergent thinking ...
(seeing many answers to the same question)
... creativity ...
(capacity for original thought)
... and thinking
... as the keys to converting facts
- and solutions to the problems of our existing state.
i have also learned to value biographies.
the stories from someone's life - and their wisdom
earned through lessons learned - inspire and ground me ...
