P2 Morning Minutes
Good morning, Cincinnatus, and welcome to June! We continue our introduction to Love of Learning by talking about why it’s important.
Developing a love of learning is highly beneficial for an individual. It means that they are intrinsically motivated to deepen their existing skills and abilities, or learn something completely new. Since intrinsically motivated action is correlated with positive emotions, those who act on their love of learning may also have enhanced mental and physical health. Additionally, individuals who love learning
have the desire and ability to overcome challenges, due to a sense of autonomy and control over their environment.
On a group level, love of learning is crucial. The best leaders have an insatiable desire to learn. And it’s only by learning and experimenting that we continue to grow.
“The purpose of learning is growth, and our minds, unlike our bodies, can continue growing as long as you live.” (Mortimer Adler)
“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” (Pablo Picasso)
