For Facts Sake

Learning is not so much about acquiring knowledge as it is about decoding the process of understanding. Once we learn how to learn, deciphering the process by which we learn best, we have become active students in our lives. We can learn anything, because we know how to approach it with our reasoned choice. This creates lasting understanding through our unique lenses. This drives innovation and progress. If we continually focus on memorizing what’s been written by others or memorizing facts for facts sake, we are learning by the adage of insanity: repeatedly doing the same thing yet expecting different results. It may work from time to time, however, our originality is noticeably absent. This is running in place.
