Encouraging Lifelong Learning Through a Minimalist Mindset

Minimalism And Self-Betterment

Practical minimalism goes beyond aesthetics to foster self-betterment. Ultimately, seeking minimalism is a process of value clarification, editing out the unnecessary, and refining.

Minimalism can help you stay committed to lifelong learning as it consists of identifying your core personal values and using them to guide your focus. This, in turn, affects time management, the projects you work on, and the learning opportunities you pursue.

Key Ideas

Identify Your Values

By identifying your core values you become more aware of what pursuits are worth your resources and can better employ them. There will be necessary tasks that don’t align with your core values, but you still have tremendous freedom to make your choices matter.

Prioritize Your Projects

Prioritizing lets you better choose the content you consume and the opportunities you seek so you can foster your core values more effectively.

Once you start pursuing productivity, efficiency-killers like TV, social media, and mindless consumption are likely to be the first to go.

Pursue Relevant Learning Opportunities

Know what you have a true passion for. Many of us are guilty of bouncing across hobbies which takes time away from activities we are truly good at or passionate about. This is not meant as discouraging exploration, but as encouraging passion.

Behaviorism theories

The behaviorist perspectives of learning originated in the early 1900s. The main idea of behaviorism is that learning consists of a change in behavior because of obtaining, strengthening and applying associations between input from the world, and observations of the individual.

  • Learning is reinforced by exercise and repetition, followed by a positive reward.
  • Learning takes place when the right parts of more complex behavior are rewarded.
Cognitive psychology

Cognitive psychology started in the late 1950s and contributed to the move away from behaviorism.

  • Instead of viewing people as collections of responses to external stimuli, people are viewed as information processors.
  • Cognitive psychology was influenced by the computer that processes information, that became analogous to the human mind.
  • Cognitive psychology understands learning as absorbing knowledge, acting on it, and storing it in memory.
  • The main teaching methods are lecturing and reading textbooks, where the learner receives knowledge passively.
