Social Learning



  • To my amazement, there was a thriving underground scene of small, informal “interest clubs” organized through the website Meetup.com.
  • And at yet another meetup, I was introduced to the Theory of Constraints, which became my most prolific source of insights on productivity.
  • Why not go along with our sociability instead of fighting it? Why not double down on the collaborative aspect of creativity in a hyperconnected world? Why not proactively adopt methods that leverage people’s gifts and perspectives instead of treating them as threats to our ego?
  • calls “intellectual loneliness.” It’s a feeling that almost no one in your social circles shares the same passion for ideas as you.
  • I teach my course the way I do: live, in real time, on video, with a two-way exchange of ideas instead of a one-way lecture.
  • What are the benefits of social learning?
    • learn vicariously through others’ parallel experiences, which means you learn far faster than figuring out everything yourself.
    • You get to learn by teaching others and giving them feedback on their work.
    • And you get to know people as holistic human beings, not just faceless avatars.
  • learning in community is that you have the opportunity to be generous.
    • You get to see your own contributions make an impact on real people.
  • When we learn together, we automatically seem to adopt a mindset of generosity, gratitude, open-mindedness, and appreciation.
