Confusion and Learning

Some thoughts about the learning process…

Typically people think that success is good and confusion is bad. In our workshops we’re always telling you that success is the most
dangerous human experience, because it keeps you from noticing other things and learning other ways of doing things. That also means that any time you fail, there’s an unprecedented opportunity for you to learn something that you wouldn’t otherwise notice. Confusion is the doorway to reorganizing your perceptions and learning something new. If you were never confused, that would mean that everything that happened to you fit your expectations, your model of the world, perfectly. Life would simply be one boring, repetitive experience after another. Confusion is a signal that something doesn’t fit, and that you have a chance to learn something new.
