A Quote for the day — from The Black Swan
If you are like me, whenever you re-read a book, or revisit your own highlights of a book, you have different quotes jump out at you. And, in my case, this especially happens when I present a synopsis a second, or third time.
Well, I presented my synopsis of The Black Swan: The Impact of the HIGHLY IMPROBABLE by Nassim Nicholas Taleb for the third time in the last few weeks just last night. And in presenting it, this quote seemed to grab me more than usual. I think it is really, really true to our experience:
“We do not spontaneously learn that we don’t learn that we don’t learn…”
And the fact that we do not know that we don’t learn that we don’t learn can be really bad…
To purchase my synopsis of The Black Swan, with audio + handout, go to our companion web site, 15minutebusinesssbooks.com.
So what happens once we become aware and we do learn that we don’t learn that we don’t learn? :0)
I guess the point is that we don’t spontaneously learn that.
Great quote. Thanks for sharing.
