Learning is: Like falling in love

  • You feel attraction to something and want to find out more about it
  • You spend time with it
  • Understanding it more is hugely rewarding and motivating
  • But you sometimes can’t quite figure it out
  • You become slightly obsessive about it
  • You may lose your sense of perspective about it
  • When something goes wrong you may be forgiving or you may have a little tantrum
  • You realise that if you’re going to go deeper you have to really work at it, after the initial ‘honeymoon’ period, and things aren’t always going to be easy
  • You have to make choices, you can’t have everything – Paris’ choice (Greek mythology…)
