Reason can be suddenly realized, and things need to be gradually improved

Reason can be suddenly realized, and things need to be gradually improved—— This is one of the words that has moved me most recently.

Reason can be suddenly realized, and things need to be gradually improved

Many people can blurt out that although they understand a lot of truth, they still can’t live a good life.

Recently, my study intensity is very high. I study almost continuously on various learning platforms. I often feel like I have picked sesame and lost watermelon.

Because learning is useless, you will soon forget it, that is, return it to the teacher.

Then what shall I do?

As I said before, if you want to learn purposefully and apply it immediately after learning, it’s not easy to forget.

For example, I used to study the course of product manager. When I learned it, I thought I understood it all, but I didn’t practice it at all. After waiting for some time, I almost forgot it all.

This year, I relearned product thinking and just had a new project to study. I relearned Kano model and applied it to practical research. This time, I really mastered Kano model and won’t forget it.

Now the knowledge of society iterates so fast that we can’t even finish learning. Let alone use it, what should we do?

Munger said: master the important theories of important disciplines.

The so-called important theory is actually the underlying logic and methodology of a discipline.

Every penny we earn is the realization of cognition, so we can achieve “rational insight” through learning methodology, and then internalize it into our own thinking model through “things need to be gradually improved”.

This answers why we understand a lot of truth, but we still can’t live a good life, because we only completed the Epiphany, but didn’t gradually practice. With the forgetting curve, the truth learned is not applied. After all, it is “shallow on paper, and you must know it and practice it”.

Truth = model

Live a good life = relate to the model

Don’t be greedy for more than you can chew. Don’t be greedy for more than you can chew. After learning, you must tamp it. Every time you encounter a similar scene, use the model to practice it again, so that you can live a good life after correlation.
