I created a list of urgent tasks yesterday. I started out with 3 points and slowly expanded the list to 16 points. I noticed that as soon as I had written down a point, I would forget the rest of my concerns related to that point (unlearn) and then my mind would start scrambling again till the next point comes in view (learn). This “Learn and Unlearn” process can be seen almost everywhere. Think about it! Its a scattered process because the universe is scattered.
The problem with creative people is that they are a kind of mini-universe. For example, I know Technical Writing, Biological Sciences, Philosophy, English Literature, Event Management, and Mathematical Sciences. But during my spare time, I am an explorer who is continuously learning something else; for example, Dancing, Acting, Nutrition, Photography, and Creative Writing. I do all these fun things on the side because they are part of my existence and I cannot exist without them. This intriguing challenge is there because “Learning” is tied into “Unlearning” and this is a critical element of “Adult Growth and Development”. Mind you! I am an ENFP so I get very excited while exploring things a lot; but other personality types are not going to take the same approach as I do in order to learn or convey something.
Here are some useful articles on this phenomenon:
