Learning without liking.

Gretchen Rubin’s book ‘Better Than Before’ has given me some good tips in how to approach habit forming. It identifies ‘four tendencies’ that I can broadly appreciate although I don’t think they’re as fixed as the author’s research suggests.

The book posits that there are strategies for habit forming (and breaking) and your tendency makes some strategies massively more effective. Although I didn’t like the organisation of the book or the writing style, I concur with both statements.

Of all the books I can remember reading, this one has the most turned over corners to go back to and reflect on, even though I really wanted to reach the end quickly. This has me thinking back to a number of learning opportunities where, because I didn’t like them, I zoned out or skipped to the end. How much learning I must have missed out on!
