Listening is an essential part of learning. But then we need to do the work.
Clarity comes from recreation. The only way to understand something is to redo it.
Writing something out is a great way to summarize thoughts. There are also other ways to connect the dots: speaking out loud, mind-mapping, sketching, and walking with a quiet mind.
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” – Maya Angelou
Recreating is learning. There’s no better way to learn something than to try to teach it: to yourself, to others, to an imaginary friend, or the mirror.
Do it by doing it.
