We’re constantly learning. When we learn new things, we’re doing them. We know when we’re doing something different (or not), but how do we know when we’ve learned it? By intentionally reflecting on what we do and how we do it, we can see that something has changed.
By naming it, or by becoming aware of our sensation of what it feels like, perhaps labelled as an “ah-ha”, we now have something “concrete” to refer to and repeat, or viscerally re-experience, as often as we’d like, to solidify the learning. We then, should we be inclined, have an opportunity to build on it.
