Lately there has been plenty of speak about changing the elderly schooling technique as if focuses on making clerks over anything else. The new line of thought also talks about children following their passion & pursuing only subjects that they have an interest in. All this is great & I am all for having a more holistic approach to schooling but what about the uninteresting books? Because if all I am doing is reading stuff that interests me a lot there is no opportunity to select up the uninteresting books which I don’t must read.
I keep in mind in my times I had to sit & read books that were highly uninteresting, i.e. they were subjects that I would be least interested in. & yet I had to sit day in & day out & struggle through these uninteresting books because they were an element of the curriculum. I would love the English textbook but I had to select up the chemistry textbook as well to make definite that I cleared my exams.
Fine, let me open the Pandora’s Box & make a case for the uninteresting textbooks.
So get to the point Raj, is what you are thinking!
What I learnt from picking up the uninteresting chemistry textbook (to me) was discipline. I learnt to do things that I do not like to do. To focus & discipline myself to perform the less pleasant tasks in life.
Sometimes in life to become successful it is these less pleasant tasks that play a key role.
To become a rockstar guitarist it is important to know the less pleasant musical scales & to do the hours of gruelling practice necessary to become proficient in playing fantastic guitar. You can also visit www.salmonstudy.org/get-rid-of-boredom-today/ to get more info.
Malcolm Gladwell in his book “Outliers” talks about the ten,000hrs rule. Gladwell claims that greatness requires huge time, using the source of The Beatles’ musical talents & Gates’ computer savvy as examples. The Beatles performed live In Hamburg Germany over one,200 times from 1960 to 1964, amassing over ten,000 hours of playing time, therefore meeting the ten,000-Hour Rule. Gladwell asserts that all of the time The Beatles spent performing formed their talent, “so by the time they returned to England from Hamburg, Germany, ‘they sounded like no else. It was the making of them’. You can also visit www.the4oh9.com/things-you-can-try-in-bored-moments/ to get more info.
