Learning isn’t just about taking in information—it’s about what you do with that information. Do you use it to see the world in new ways, to come to new conclusions, to behave differently? If not, I propose to you that you’re not really learning. […] Real learning is almost always at least somewhat uncomfortable. It’s challenging. It’s figuring out how to operate in new ways, questioning your assumptions, putting new ideas into practice. Real learning takes you out of the tried-and-true, and into that murky, disturbing land of I’m-notvery-good-at-this. And, I submit to you, that kind of learning is central to our success today. In fact, I’d propose that being able to learn new skills (vs. new facts) quickly and continuously is the key capability.
