Do You Have A Hard Time Learning?

Do you have a hard time learning? It can be easy, once you realize that learning is just a relationship.

The minute you connect the unknown with the known, you have a relationship.

Is someone trying to teach you something? Do they say put Tab A in Slot A. Good. You know what Tab A is, and you know what Slot A is.

What happens when they say, take the discuspet and put it in Slot A? Hm.

What if they say, take the discuspet and put it in the mascuspet? Yikes! You know what that means, don't you? You are in the wrong class!

No, I'm just teasing. When someone teaches you something and they say discuspet -- or any word you don't know -- stop them right there. Ask them what a discuspet is, and if you understood everything they said, then let them proceed.

Now, you know what a discuspet is. They say, take the discuspet and put it in the mascuspet. Whoa! Stop them right there and ask what a mascuspet is. They tell you and now you understand. Who said learning was hard?

Oh, you say? What happens when they answer your question saying that a mascuspet is a third of a tricuspet. Whoa! This is getting complicated. Do you think you can handle it?

Sure. You ask them to explain tricuspet, and to use terms YOU understand. Tell them to start with a nail. You KNOW what a nail is. Then, they can show you the RELATIONSHIP. That's all learning is. Finding out the relationship of something you don't understand to something you do.

Teachers love to teach, and if they know you can grasp the concept of nail, they can take it from there. They might say, *A tricuspet is made of the same material a nail is and it's shaped like a fan blade, and it's function is to ________.*

A great teacher gives the name, tells what it's made of, what it looks like, and what it does, whenever possible, to everything they are teaching. EVERYTHING. It takes the word *stupid* out of the classroom. And isn't that a fantastic concept?

*** By the way, I made up the words discuspet, mascuspet, and tricuspet. However, if there really is a discuspet, mascuspet, or tricuspet, feel free to explain it to me. Start with nail, because I know what that is. ***
