I truly think that there’s an inverse correlation between how much people say “it’s the journey, not the destination” and how often people live as though this were true or they actually believed what they were saying. In other words, people say “it’s the journey, not the destination” but every action, thought, and word out of their mouth seems to betray this overused cliche.

My experience dealing with and within the field of education has provided me with genuine insight into how people learn best. In my mind, there are three ways in which people get smarter, and they start from the least productive to the most. In isolation, all of the methods lack something, but when combined they are a force to be reckoned with.
