Most people assume learning comes naturally. You listen to someone speak either in conversation or in a lecture and you simply absorb what they are saying, right? Not really.

1. Quiet Your Inner Voice
2. Argue With Yourself
3. Act Like You Are Curious
4. Find the Kernel of Truth
5. Focus on the Message Not the Messenger
