How to become a hyper learner

To stay relevant in this digital age, we have to learn, unlearn and relearn to be. Ed Hess calls it hyper-learning.

How well we think, learn, and engage with the human tasks of the future depends on how well we manage and optimize what happens to our mind, brain, and body.

Humanity has always faced these challenges, but what is different today is the intensity – the time frame we have available for learning, unlearning and relearning.

Our egos make us think we know more than we do and hinder hyperlearning. Fear is also an inhibitor. If we want to hyperlearn, we need to listen to understand other perspectives. Too often we listen to argue or to make our point.

To become a hyper learner, we need to become our “best selves” cognitively, behaviorally, and emotionally. This requires three main steps:

Step 1: achieve inner peace

Inner peace is important because in this state you are better able to do things with an open, nonjudgmental, and fearless mind. We maintain inner peace by calming our ego, mind and body and developing a positive emotional state.

With inner peace, you are better able to slow down and “make choices in your thinking, emotions, and behavior.”

What you need to confront is whether your ego is loud enough to interfere with your ability to become a hyper learner.

To become our best selves, our “selves” need to become “more selfless” – that is, we need to reduce the time we spend doing self-referential thinking to be with the world outside of us and more effective with others.

“A calm mind is a calm, quiet mind that focuses on the present moment.” It’s not competitive. It’s a ghost trying to see the world for what it is without judgment or the distractions that come from multitasking or rumination.

A whole body is one who is at peace. “It’s not tense, chronically stressed, anxious, angry, fearful, or in pain.” Most of these problems are mental and affect our thinking. They can be influenced by certain meditation and breathing exercises.

Positive emotions are essential for hyper-learning. We can learn to generate positive emotions. “Being kind to others, caring for others, being grateful for what one has, and experiencing simple daily joys all help to be in a positive emotional state.”

Step 2: adopt a hyper-learning mindset

Hess has compensated for two lifelong learning mindsets: the growth mindset and the NewSmart mindset.

Carol Dweck popularized the Growth Mindset. In contrast to the fixed mindset, the growth mindset is based on the idea that our intelligence is not fixed, but that we can learn, improve our skills and grow. It sees potential.

The NewSmart Mindset redefines what is “intelligent”. Rather than looking at smart as the accumulation and memory of knowledge, NewSmart looks at smart and thinking in ways that computers cannot – “Possibilities that involve exploration, discovery, imagination, morality, creativity, innovation and critical thinking when there are many unknowns or there is little data. ”

Step 3: act like a hyper learner

As a hyper learner, your behavior is important. “With behavior, you operationalize your values, your beliefs and your purpose.” Great line. Behaviors reflect how you see or define yourself. To change behaviors, you need to change the story you tell about yourself.

Behaviors are granular. They are reflected in how you speak, how you speak, how you are physically present, how you connect with people, how you listen, how you think, how you deal with your emotions, how you ask questions, and how you react .

Hess asked us to list what behaviors we consider necessary to become hyper-learner? It offers a list of curiosity, humility, social intelligence, empathy, courage, resilience and trustworthiness.

Not only do we have to be different, we also have to learn to work differently. In particular, we need to humanize the workplace and create an environment that alleviates ego and anxiety.

Humanizing the workplace means that the desired values ​​and behaviors are incorporated into the daily work – the daily fabric of the organization – through practices that are used every day by all people.

Hess emphasizes the importance of emotional connections. And the answer to the question why do I exist? “People long for more of their work. They want to experience more meaning and wealth and more joy. You want higher quality emotional connections with others. And it’s not just coming from younger generations. “

What makes hyper-learning practical is its focus on behavior. He does this through explanation, but above all with a workshop / workbook format that encourages active participation in the text through reflection and journaling.
