Learnings from "The Five Elements of Thinking"
Core Lessons to become better learner
Hi there, Shiro here 👋
This week I read “The Five Elements of Effective Thinking” by Edward Burger and Michael Starbird wherein the authors are trying to teach how to learn better.
In this newsletter, I'll be sharing my biggest learning from the book, which is, The Power of Failures
But first, quotes to embrace the failures...
🖊 Quotes of the Week
Every mistake is a teacher and holds a lesson.
Success is about persisting through the process of repeatedly failing and learning from failure.
Mistakes present a great opportunity to learn and improve, but action is required.
Time for Key Learnings from the Book
Master the Basics: When you learn anything, go for depth and make it rock solid. In everything you do, refine your skills and knowledge about fundamental concepts and simple cases. ONCE IS NEVER ENOUGH. As you revisit fundamentals, you will find new insights.
Fail Productively: This involves 2 Basic Steps: Creating the mistake and then exploring the mistake. Here, you need to fail deliberately at something that you know is wrong - to identify and clarify where the defects lie. Analyze each mistake to understand the reason for its wrong, thus gaining new insights that may point you in the right direction.
Create Questions for better understanding: Constantly formulating and raising questions is a mind-opening habit that forces you to have a deeper engagement with the world and a different inner experience. Try to create questions that expose hidden assumptions, clarify issues, and lead to action.
