How to break bad habits
How habits are formed
The importance of consistency
“A teacher divides a class into two groups. Group A only has to produce one clay pot. Group B has to make as many clay pots as possible. In the end, not only did Group B make more clay pots, but their final pots were better than the ones made by Group A. Quantity leads to quality.”
The argument in The Clay Pot Story is that if you want to get better, you’ve got to produce again and again, not theorise over it. But it is missing a big component.
What is missing from most stories is that the quantity group of the Clay Pot Story was turning out piles of work and learning from their mistakes while the "quality" group theorised about perfection and had little to show for their efforts.
The real message is to engage in the full learning cycle.
If you want to transform your learning, consider the four pillars of Experiential Learning:
Just turning out clay pots, blog posts, loaves of bread doesn't guarantee improvement. Unless you also actively engage in the learning process, you might just be strengthening bad habits. Once you've formed a bad habit, it can be very difficult to break.
You might feel like you're making progress, but unless you're also learning about your situation, you might be stuck in a productivity loop, just collecting the best hack, the best software, the best list of practices. It feels like you're progressing, but you're not.
You'll only really learn if you use all four steps of the learning cycle.
Solve the problem or leave the problem. But…… Do not live with the problem.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
