Tip 40: Learn to love learning

'If you don't learn to love learning, you won't learn anything.'

Most people have quite bad feelings with regards to 'learning'. This mainly stems from memories of boring classroom sessions, of high pressure during meaningless school exams and of being put on the spot by incompetent teachers.

The challenge with this is that there is no way around learning in times of accelerating change. Effective learning processes, though, are driven by the limbic system, the emotional brain, which has the power to open or close access to learning. If your attitude towards the learning situation or the learning topic is negative, forget about learning. It just won't happen!
