Lately I have pondered ways to increase the learning potential. Having at one point been measured with an IQ around 175 in the 3rd grade, I have learned a lot (and forgotten a bit) along the way. Lately I think I have found something to increase how well we learn something.
I have started creating adrenaline inducing situations. I think we all agree that when a mistake costs us thousands of dollars, we learn never to duplicate that mistake, right? And yet if an error only costs us 50 cents, it is not a big deal.
So, lately I am working on ways to have adrenaline pumping as I learn to increase the depth of retention of the new lesson. At first, I am applying this to myself, and soon I will apply this to those that I coach and mentor.
Anything I can do to ingrain the lesson without the cost of thousands of dollars, right?
