week-end report, week 41, 2012

Taking my shot at describing, capturing for future, further access, what I learned this week—whether I really understood it, or not.

[1] Work-arounds don't work

You have to do the actual work. The specific, detailed routine stuff.

[2] Repetition is required.

You can't just say it once and have it be so. Telling your staff what's required, how you want it done, communicating your needs, preferences to your partner, teaching your kids — it's not going to happen the first time out. Yes, you told them already. No, they don't get it yet. Not yet.

If it's important, you'll do what it takes to make it happen, right?

Know that it will take more than once.

[3] Learning takes place in your hands

Learning takes place in your hands, not your head. You have to actually do a thing, not just read about it, talk about it, analyze it, compare and contrast it, repeat what other people have said about it. You have to actually do it. yourself. to understand it.

And, then, go back to number 2 above, you need to do it more than once.

Learning takes place in your hands, not in your head.
