How I Unlearn

It is interesting that Chantelle never used the word “unlearn” in her comment. I think “triple-loop-learning” that she brought up is a great model of unlearning.

Loop 1: action -> result [result loops back to action to affect it]

Loop 2: thinking -> action -> result [result loops back to thinking to affect it]

Loop 3: context -> thinking -> action -> result [result loops back to context to affect it]

Or, as Thomas Edison might say: “I have not failed 10,000 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.” He did, in fact, “unlearn” 10,000 times, he “learned” about 10,000 ways that don’t work.
