I Already Know This

The moment you assume that you already know something, what happens?

When you’re in a class and the teacher is about to talk about a topic that you think you already know everything there is to know about, what happens?

When someone tells a story about someone that you think you’ve already heard before, what happens?

You shut down your attention and focus on something else.

Or you keep your attention but at a minimum amount, assuming there is no new information to process.

In both cases you shut down your learning.

So, what’s the problem about that?

Maybe there isn’t one. Maybe it’s true that you already do know everything there is to know about that topic or about that story. That possibility does exist.

But in most cases, if you decide otherwise…

… if you decide to listen closely, to pay attention, although you think you already know it…

… there is indeed something new to discover, something you didn’t know, or from another angle than the one you had so far.

So, assuming that there is something to learn, even – and especially – in the things that you already DO know a lot about really can lead to great discoveries and new insights.
