S3-18: MBM – Learning Mastery!

“We do not learn, and that what we call learning is only a process of recollection.” ~Plato

It seems we address certain types of learning differently than say preparing to perform. In other words, to prepare for a performance we will practice, practice, and practice some more. But, when it comes to learning something we expect to see or hear it once and completely know it and be able to recall it.

Crazier still, we tend to think we’re not too smart if we need to relearn the same lesson over and over again.

MG and HE challenge this idea. MG recalls how some of the audio lessons on his playlist he’s heard “hundreds” of times! The EXACT SAME lesson. And, he says, here’s the “crazy” thing? each time he seems to pickup and learn something new.

Why is that? How can you or I hear the same message three times, for instance, and learn or pickup something different each time?

They cover the various reasons behind this phenomena and then, ultimately, propose this is precisely what higher education is about? for instance what PhD students do! They study the SAME SUBJECT over and over and then again, some more. They GO DEEP vs wide (breadth) and cover the same topic from different angles and perspectives. And, because of this, they notice details, nuances and connections most people will never see.

This, learning the same things over and over and then some more, is really what we call expertise. This is what mastery really is!

S02-INT10: Andrew Ferebee: The Evolution of Knowledge For Men

“I was just doing it for myself. I was coming out of a break up and I had just quit my job and I was in a place of pain… it was a broken-hearted pain and a lost pain… I didn’t know what I was doing…”

If you know a young man ages 20- 45ish… Andrew Ferebee is the guy he should know and Knowledge For Men is the blog and podcast he should subscribe to!

That “pain” was the impetus that launched Knowledge For Men. Andrew Ferebee was grappling with extreme personal challenges and at the age of twenty-four began his blog as a way to help him sort out his issues, vent, pose some big life questions and at the same time share his journey.

Andrew became an avid personal development student, devouring hundreds of self help books, going to events and as he wrote about and shared what he learned his blog grew rapidly in popularity! Less than a year into his endeavor he had 700,000 views per month and recognized his struggle was resonating with thousands of young men around the world.

Today, his podcast, Knowledge For Men has over 2.4 Million downloads.

In this “in the studio”, in-person interview Martin and Andrew’s cover:

-The struggle, pain and confusion that launched the blog and podcast
-How he felt “lost” without purpose and direction
-How KFM was not about a business but about him sorting through his challenges
-His constant push and challenge to keep growing and push outside the comfort zone – example his weekend event that just wrapped up!
-What success is— how he defines it
– Why action is so important
– The perfect thing to say to the opposite sex and in even in public environments
– Three powerful and important habits he’s developed
– Some of his favorite/transformational books (below)

“I buy books like candy… I go into Amazon and I’m like a kid in a candy store…”

“If I didn’t hit my goal I would still count myself as a success because I still did it and the next time I do it I will be that much better.”

“I can learn whatever I need to learn to get where ever I want to get… that is what dating taught me and that is what a lot of these personal development books taught me.”

S02-Mind Bullet Monday 09: The Great Eight That Separate!

Nobody has more than twenty-four hours, yet some people get far ahead of others.

“If everyone requires eight hours of sleep to be healthy and most of us have jobs that require at least eight hours of work, it’s what you do with the ‘other’ eight that will make all the difference for your future…”

Martin kicks off this episode sharing an observation Napoleon Hill made decades ago— how you use your “other” eight hours of your 24 hours will be make all the difference in your future results and paves the way for your “success”!

How are you using the “other” eight?

If success is creating your ideal future, then what you study, the skills and habits you develop in those other eight hours become essential to help you craft your ideal future.

Sadly, it appears most people waste those other eight hours on frivolous activities. Certainly, we all need rest and recreation but those other eight hours are the key — the path to a brighter, better future.

What would happen if you devoted just 15 minutes (of the other eight) consistently?

Since you probably plan on living another two or three years, devoting just 15 minutes a day, 5 times a week studying ANY skill or trade will likely make you an expert or put you very close to expertise and far ahead of others.

Check out this episode and be sure to share this Mind Bullet Monday!
