When we have no relevant experience or expertise, the vulnerability, uncertainty, and fear of these firsts can be overwhelming. Yet, showing up and pushing ourselves past the awkward, learner stage is how we get braver. (Brené Brown)

 

Fumbling First Try

5.5 minutes

Professor and author Brené Brown talks about "effing first tries" but which I call "fumbling first tries." These are the firsts cited in the quote above—those that involve that awkward learner stage. And yes, getting through our FFTs makes us braver!

What Is a Memory Palace?

8 minutes

A "memory palace" is a mnemonic device or technique in which a learner imagines a location such as a house or room and places concepts or terms to be remembered at specific locations within it. This helps a person remember a large group of things by remembering their location in the imagined location.

This technique is also called "method of loci"—and bunch of other synonyms that one would need a memory palace to remember.
