In this week’s webinar, Barry O’Reilly, Co-author of Lean Enterprise, Founder of ExecCamp, Antennae, and faculty at Singularity University introduced the concept of “Learn-Unlearn-Relearn”

You must unlearn what you have been programmed to believe since birth. You must think big to unlearn as it is a difficult process.

Many organizations think that it is easier to predict the future using very few resources. When an organization implements predictive methods to learn, Unlearn and re-learn, new things help to deliver different methods for the organization as much as it would benefit an individual.

Entrepreneurs are the most enthusiastic learners but the little-known fact is that they will not know that it is more important to unlearn.

"The illiterate of the 21st Century are not those who cannot read and write but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn."

Alvin Toffler

Our culture places so much emphasis and value on learning, especially through established content and academic information that is ubiquitous. It becomes important to be fed on constantly with concepts & visuals that remain in our memory and enables us to feel that we are making progress in life, materially, and psychically. We feel secure, and have a sense of self-worth.

As Barry quoted “Dividing an elephant into two parts won’t make two new small elephants,” most of the time, people analyze things and break them into pieces that would not affect as an efficient plan. Because we learn to showcase our talents in office, in front of our friends & peers, and be valued more in our society. But, in this process, we forget the need to relearn what we have learned or been taught, but only in a better way.

Why Relearning seems too difficult?

  • Fear of conflict with existing beliefs
  • Can’t conjure up the confidence to work on something new
  • Insecure about believing in our sense of worth
  • Not knowing that ‘Learning’ is a natural skill
  • Afraid to interpret & make sense of new information
  • The belief that learning requires a lot of effort
  • Afraid of making a mistake

Growth mindset

A growth mindset is to thrive on challenge and seeing failure not as evidence of unintelligence but as a heartening springboard.

People with a growth mindset welcome new experiences and treat each one as a valuable opportunity to learn. They are eager to learn, even when outcomes are much different than what they expected, i.e., what most people call “failures.” One must develop skills that support a growth mindset, especially in today’s world characterized by uncertainty and volatility. And, one must believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work.

Fixed mindset

A mindset where a person believes that no efforts can match their talent or skill-sets. At certain points of their career, people believe their qualities are fixed traits and therefore cannot change or they won’t simply make a change. These people document their intelligence and talents rather than working to develop and improve them. They also believe that talent alone leads to success, and effort is not required.
