I’m a big fan of the learning process and have had a few days where I’ve done this, and I have found myself saying “yeah, I can do this in two weeks” or “I can do it in five.”
I do a lot of learning in this process and, if I could find a few of my best learning moments, I’d probably use those.
When I’m writing an essay, I’ll do the same thing: write down the words I think I’m going to learn and then write out the sentence in my head that best describes that feeling.
If I’m teaching a class, I’ve got the same process.
For me, it’s all about being flexible, being open to what’s happening, and being willing to listen and be challenged.
I’m learning so much in that process that it can become overwhelming to be focused on the things that are important.
My favorite learning moment is when I am teaching a book, which is where I’ll take a break and just do whatever I need to do to get myself ready for the next lesson.
One of the things I love about teaching is that you can have a different approach every day.
I’ll come in and say, “Okay, here’s the next book, here is the next chapter, here are the next exercises, here it is.”
I love it.
It makes you go back and think, “I want to do this tomorrow.”
