To learn or NOT TO LEARN
There is a huge misconception in the world today.
There are many people who call themselves teachers. Remember that old saying, "You can lead a horse to water but cannot make him drink."
This is true in education...especially more so today than ever before.
I follow the philosophy of, "There is no teaching...there is learning or not learning."
For those of you reading this who have tried to teach someone something at one time or another you know what I am talking about.
They just could not get it. They were not focused. They did not seem interested. Should I keep adding more excuses that we come up with when we have failed to "Teach"?
So now let's look at the concept again, but in a different light.
The more complicated you make the presentation of your materials...the harder you make it for someone to learn...PERIOD!
We used the fire analogy a few blog posts ago. Too much wood on the fire actually kills the fire.
The same goes for learning. Too much info thrown at someone too soon or in rapid fire, can actually turn off the student's ability to grasp the material.
So if I present you with all the material and say, "Go." You will have it all in about 5 minutes...right? WRONG!
In my opinion, the material has to be presented in a logical manner so that the student can LEARN it. It's really that simple.
When things are made simple, even complex subjects, they can be learned...providing that the presentation makes it easy to mentally digest.
I learned how to trade options, a subject that frankly at first seemed waaay out of my wheelhouse. After talking to professional traders, one a family member, trying to get an understanding of this, I was even more confused as it was made much more complicated...for a beginning trader, than it had to be.
I found a resource that I paid for and it was really simple. I went on to 108 straight trades without a loss. What I learned was invaluable...not just about options trading, but about LEARNING. You see...the materials were presented in a simple, straightforward manner. I immediately resonated with this presentation style and voila! I was up and running within 30 days trading.
My question for you today is...Are you a teacher? Or are you an educator who makes learning easier for your students based on how you present the material.
