Fastest 17 Ways to Learn Something New

HOW TO STOP BEING AN IDIOT IMMEDIATELY

Feb 18, 2018 · 5 min read

“Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” — MARK TWAIN

1. My son Lincoln’s 6th Grade Teacher died a few days ago.

“She would sit with me the whole time and comfort me and tell me I’d be out there again before I knew it.”

2. Your world will change when your education changes.

3. What if you lack courage to try something new?

4. If you want courage to act, start with a better question.

How can I get “xyz” results without “abc” happening?

5. Lots of cool shells on beaches around the world. While they may be pretty. They are “washed up.”

Time to shed the shell.

6. Variety is the spice of life.

7. If you stay up late, don’t.

8. I heard a popular speaker tell a crowd of thousands that he hoped they’d all lose their jobs.

9. No one wants to get hurt.

10. If you’re doing the same thing day in and day out…

11. If you’re not using talents, gaining new ones, stretching your mind…

12. I promise you that as you do new stuff, get into a new environment, try new things, the drudgery of your current work or life will actually be invigorated with invention and innovation because your brain will catch fire — like being a kid again…only this time, wiser and able to take action on big picture dreams.

13. When you care more than you fear, nothing can stop you.

14. Integrity is an inside job.

15. “If you want the fruits without the labor, go to the grocery store.” — Cardon Norton (12)

16. Be kind.

17. See every challenge, every luxury, everything fun, boring, rad, sad, cool, drool…as a learning experience.

BONUS: Start before you know how.
