Unlearning

You were pretty confident that you had always thought and acted in the correct way for you. Then, the conditions and outcomes once held that supporting your actions has changed.

What we once believed and almost automatically responded to is will no longer work for us. When this occurs, the real challenge is to unlearn the patterns of behavior and then again learn a new and more productive pattern for success.

In terms of unlearning, just think for a moment on the changing environment and conditions presented to you via a pandemic. Masking, hand washing, greeting others, physical distance, and on and on. None of these were customary for us in society before the virus. What have we had to unlearn so far that allows us to learn again?

To unlearn is a critical component in the learning process. Always having done it one particular way in the past won’t necessarily make it right for the foreseeable future.

Discover today a specific pattern that you would be better off with if you would unlearn it and reset your for learning again.

The curious thing is that with these exponential changes, so much of what we currently know is just getting to be wrong. So many of our assumptions are getting to be wrong. As so, as we move forward, not only is it going to be a question of learning it is also going to be a question of  unlearning.” — John Seely Brown —
