It is surprising how much time we spend in our lives trying to unlearn what we know.....truth be said, learning takes up only a fraction of the time unlearning does.
But i've come realize that both are equally important.upto a certain point in our existence, we do things in a particular manner which we have learned ;consciously or subconciously.When,suddenly, we come across a better way to do the same thing , we are compelled to choose between the two. If most of you are like me, then you would choose to unlearn what you knew before and go in for the " bigger, better " stuff....
Easier said than done. Part of why unlearning is so hard is that it requires the person to accept that they were going wrong somewhere.Thats where the little demon called ego creeps in. Killing it requires courage and conviction, but once it is done ;the process of unlearning begins.
And only when we unlearn the old, can we learn the new....right?
