Learning

Verse 19. Learning

“Knowledge is power and learning is super power” _ Jim Kwik

I worked previously on a project themed on ‘Learning’. It is common sense that knowledge is power, but knowledge is acquired via learning and discovery.

As a graphic designer, one constantly seeks knowledge in order to solve problems and to bring ideas to life. Designers are visual detectives and visual communicators. When creating work or responding to a clients brief, research is key and in the process more is learned.

The counter or negative space in the letter ‘W’ from the word ‘POWER’ are two inward pointing arrows symbolizing ‘knowledge’ and ‘super power’ you acquire or gain when you learn or discover new things. Take away the ‘P’ and ‘R’ from the word ‘POWER’ and you are left with the word ‘OWE’.

Learning is what you OWE yourself.

Keep learning.

Learning is never too much, rather, it is insufficient.

The Mind, The Body

Mind-controls-Body

I have heard people say things like ‘the mind plays tricks’ and I do wonder if this is true.

There are many cases of the ‘imposter syndrome’ affecting intrinsic abilities, performances, downgrading personal achievements, and feeling like a fraud. Could this be a case of the mind playing tricks?

I read a while back that ‘Love in the mind is eternal’. Is this true? How about the growing number of divorce cases in the modern age, where did love go?

Many superior teams have been well beaten by lesser oppositions in sporting competitions. Is it a case of David defeating Goliath or a case of mental strength and focus not being right or present on the day. Was the mind absent?

“Success is focusing on what we put our minds to consistently” _Tony Robbins

Tony Robbins makes reference to the mind affecting our state and well being, and like his quote will suggest; we improve. Then again I wonder, why will the mind suggest that all the success you’ve been able to achieve isn’t particularly good enough. Or maybe, you actually did not solely achieve it as in the case of the imposter syndrome. What really is the mind up to here?

The mind controls self confidence, expertise, preparation, character, discipline, extra ordinary performances and more.

“Learning never exhaust the mind” Leonardo Da Vinci say. Study about the mind seems ongoing. Will the mind continue to present itself like a minefield or will it indicate where it resides, because a thorough question could be put to the mind if it really does play tricks… Does it?
