Perfect Practice Makes Perfect

I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand

Ancient Proverb
Some of us are good listeners. Some of us have to see it to believe it. But all of us have to perform and practice to really understand something.

True understanding is the result of a lasting process of stages:

  1. Cognitive Stage. You listen and you consider a concept or exercise.

  2. Associative Stage. You compare the exercise to your life experience and you see it in your memory. You associate how it fits for you or others.

  3. Autonomous Stage. If you accept the concept in the Associative Stage, you can next acquire the skill in the Autonomous Stage. The skill becomes more automatic -- a part of you. You're on your own and you may create adaptations of the exercise or concept on your own.

Reaching the Third Stage -- the Autonomous Stage is the ultimate in human understanding; however, no matter how automatic a skill becomes, you still might prefer to have a machine do the work. In the Information Age, a successful person knows when to use a machine to save energy for human creative processes.
