Do you believe that there is always something to learn, in a situation or in a moment, or in ' life school'?
As an entrepreneur, your eyes and ears must be open to grasp, anywhere and everywhere.
Made yourself comfortable in the "learning mode"
Continuous learning is the minimum requirement of success, in any field - Briny Tracy
Unlearning is equally important. It is the part of " learning ", itself. Unfortunately, unlearning is not covered in our academic curriculum.
We allow ourselves to be controlled by perceived and (mis !) conceived notions, governed by myths, false assumptions, opinions, free guidance, etc. We, being a part of the "society" is not open to new ideas and unwilling to undergo paradigm shifts.
If we want to nurture the culture of entrepreneurship, we have to open for new ideas, new innovations. To cultivate the growth mindset and/or an entrepreneur mindset, you need to unlearn those unwanted, obsolete beliefs, myths that will allow to enrich the entrepreneur and hence the business and overall economy.
What is UNLEARNING?
We can define it as the Process of releasing that " something ", which is what we learned is obsolete or ineffective or incorrect, and exploring what we have stored in our system and deleting all unnecessary data.
Basically, Unlearning is a process of saying ' bye ' to the old, obsolete, and outdated paradigm and willing to undergo a paradigm shift.
Perfecting onself is as much unlearning as it is learning - Edsger W. Dijkstra
