Learning is a life-long adventure… don’t you agree? Honestly, if we stop learning we stop living.
Conventionally speaking, we are taught by someone telling us what to do and how to do it. Yet, is that the best way to learn?
Having someone tell us what to do brings about different reactions from different people. Most can’t focus long enough to get the whole point of what they’re being taught, some “rebel” against the idea of being told what to do, and overall it just doesn’t become a part of us as something we’ve really learned.
The best way to solicit a true learning experience is to ask questions. If someone is asked questions when they are learning, it causes them to go inside to find the answer. Really understanding from their core what it is they want to learn.
Picture it this way… when we are told what to do, some of what is being taught gets through and some of it “bounces off” us and is lost. When we are asked questions and dig deep for the answer, it is within us… ingrained in who we are. It makes us think, ponder, and become connected with the answer.
So not only do we seek out questions as a way to learn, we need to understand that this is the best way for us to teach. Our “students” will get way more from what we are teaching them, use more of it in their lives and look to us as someone who they’d like to learn more from.
Learning is a key part of life… and the key to learning is through the power of the question. Do you agree?
