Learning means accepting something new, which asks us to step over the edge of our comfort zone. Seems we have two prevailing (yet unconscious) strategies for dealing with edges: avoid or confront. Avoiding means retreating to the perceived safety of what you already know, limiting learning. Confronting means making yourself do something. Neither works, simply because they leave discomfort intact. Option 3: accept that learning opens space for new possibilities. If you’re not willing to be disrupted, it’s difficult to learn anything new.
