This wonderful quotation is from Charles Eames and comes compliments of Brain Pickings–a marvelously curated weekly newsletter for the insatiably curious. It reminded me of this quotation from Sebastian Thurn which I highlighted in yesterday’s post (The Future’s New Rules of the Road):
“It’s sad that we never get trained to leave assumptions behind.”
These two thoughts then brought to mind this new and insightful article, Business Schools Need to Focus On Unlearning, by Erica Dhawan.
Because Dhawan states that we need to value questions over answers and because this is an idea which I try to subscribe to in in seven shorts words; I’d like to pose these three questions to you:
How do you try to re-understand your knowledge?
How do you train yourself to leave behind your assumptions?
And how do you unlearn?
I’m sincerely interested in your thoughts, ideas, responses and suggestions and will repost and respond to all comments.
