"I know you think you understand what you thought I said but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant”
― Alan Greenspan
Have you ever been called out that "you don't learn, do you?"
It is because someone is repeating the same event ( or someone would say " Mistake" ) over and over again.
Our strong evidence is our knowledge. When it comes to the human mind, we weigh-in and weigh-out depending on what we learned.
But, is this the same knowledge keeping us in the box of attitude?
It is possible to have different result while performing the same task over and over again. It is possible to keep an open end of "Anything Is Possible" against the grain of all academic knowledge.
It is important to educate ourselves for the sake of better presentation, but it is dreadful mistake to lock ourselves in the rigid walls of knowledge.
It is a mistake that there can be nothing beyond what I know in any situation.
Seek the Pattern
Well educated but an open-minded approach and pattern seeking behavior is the key to transform any event into a success.
Observe the quirk of our actions relating to the surroundings. We make them paramount of our cultural fundamental. We turn them into a habit.
But those customs, manners or "things" lose value if we do not apply in appropriation. It is " The Habit Loop" that prevents us from applying our beliefs, knowledge or "things" in appropriation.
It is imperative to resist and overcome the urge to applying personal stereotypes to succeed, but at the same time, it is equally important to run in default for yield.
Break the Pattern
Continuous pattern seeking and habit forming behavior indirectly feed the ego and a blind spot phenomenon.
It is less critical in proving to harbor right knowledge (ego) than finding to know what is appropriate and conscientious.
Feeling of proud over knowledge closes avenues of future learning so as improvement is pattern seeking. This further creates a blind spot in the existing knowledge.
It is crucial in breaking patterns, habits, "things" for the sake of superior decisions, higher potentials, and happiness.
We are more than six billions of human beings so as that many beliefs and even more approaches to succeed.
This argues against "less you know, more comfortable you are."
Instead of knowing more and maintaining the vacuum to understand and learn more help us to diversify thoughts.
If our learned is more diverse, we can communicate effectively with different people, we can even learn more.
There are many ways to several thoughts including different and unfamiliar environments, books, movies, clubs, workplaces, and even hypothetical situations.
