Want to Learn? Well, First Know What to unLearn

Schools teach us is to do what is told. No question on why the homework is important or why not find any new way to solve this problem. We tried to do that, some of us did it better to get better grades.

On the opposite side in life, we encounter problems which needs unique solutions for every person. And unfortuanetly we have no one to tell us what to do.

This is just a tiny example of why unlearning is important, but it helps to give you an idea. Time is changing all the time, so should our learning be.

Everyday we learn many things, both good and bad. A ‘filter for learning’ can help us better use what is good, and before that help us unlearn what is not good or what did not work.

I wish you a happy un-learning!

“The illiterates of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”  -Alvin Toffler

Thanks to my friend Sebastian Sastre for bringing the term UNLEARN, he has written incredible stuff on Philosophy is the new plan.
