🍎 PD – Why “Challenging” May Not Be The Right Goal

πŸ”“ This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through August 9th, 2024. Join today!


"Challenging" tasks are often merely hard. What if we aimed for "Interesting" instead?

Follow up question: so, how do you make something interesting?

The best way is to think back to when you were first learning the topic (beware the curse of knowledge here!) and ask yourself: what was surprising about this? Humans are instinctually drawn to surprising things that don't seem to fit our patterns. "Surprising" goes hand-in-hand with "interesting."

This article about curiosity may be worth reading as well.

The registration window closes on August 9th, 2024
