I have something to help stir up ideas here.  It's a questionnaire I made for a talk I gave in Albuquerque in 1997.  It was passed out as people came into the room, and we didn't talk about it specifically, but just answering the questions takes a person one giant step closer to not needing to think so much about learning.  

There's a great irony, from that day, and that is that I said (in nervousness, I hope, or habit) that "Kirby taught himself to read."  DOH!  So I stepped everyone back a couple of baby steps.  Still, the giant step...

The full set of seven question is at this link, but if you want to, just answer one by one as I bring them here.  Either way might be fun.  If you want to print a couple out and go through it with a husband or grown kid or friend...  https://sandradodd.com/learning.JPG

First question:

List five things you learned after the age of twelve that you learned totally outside of school.

(If you can't think of five, list what you can think of. I'll come back tomorrow and share my own list.)
