Learning Hard Stuff

I was never a good learner. And naturally I struggled a lot during my initial schooling.

My mom used to help me study at home. One way she would make complex concepts easy is by finding patterns or fitting them in something I already understand.

“This” is like “that”

“That” could be a real life scenario, an anecdotal experience, a story, or something from a different subject. It made things so easy. And now, that’s become a practice.

I try to remember everything in metaphors. Lessons are often found where we seek for them.
