1. “a willingness to try things, have them not work out, but learn from that and move on”
2. “if we don’t focus on the process, we’re never going to get to a good spot”
3. “we should be pulling ourselves back to ask questions”
4. “taking time to reflect and to think”
5. “Recognize this need to not be a poor imitation of others, but to be ourselves to learn”
6. “we need to play to our strengths”
7. specialization & selection — “we have a depth of knowledge in certain topics” however “we’re also willing to appreciate breadth”
8. “Others educate us and provide valuable knowledge”
As Staats describes WHAT we have to do, personal knowledge mastery is a framework that describes HOW to by no means cease studying. For instance, right here is how François Lavallée describes his private course of.
Here is my private twist on PKM.
1 – I’ve to obviously state that the course has had a profound affect on the way in which I deal with data.
2 – I admit it : I’m not in any respect disciplined
3 – It works anyway!!!
PKM made me notice that infobesity afflicts us all except we take management of the fixed circulation of data round us.
The means I cope with it , because of the PKM workshop , is to look after my community.
My community will present me with related data , on the proper time ( and continuously a bit earlier than the shit hits the fan!) or after I request it.
I ceased to attempt to maintain monitor of every part and the FOMO [fear of missing out] simply went away.
This alone was definitely worth the effort of taking the workshop (which I did diligently sufficient for the entire 6 weeks).
And then, the truth that I exploit twitter sporadically stopped being shameful. Same factor with LinkedIn.
PKM allowed me to raised outline my wants.”
In PKM in Action: Part 1 & Part 2 I gave a number of examples of particular person practices. They are all completely different but all of them adhere to some or all of Staats’s components. Here are a few of my ideas and assets on every of his eight components.
- perpetual beta
- a framework is a basis to construct upon: Seek > Sense > Share
- as work will get automated, it’s as much as us to ask the difficult questions
- sparks of brilliance usually come from reflection
- actual studying shouldn’t be summary, it’s personal — and could also be painful — select correctly
- understanding our strengths, we don’t learn for school but for life
- a neo-generalist is someplace between a polymath and a hyper-specialist
- in order to work collaboratively, we’ve got to learn cooperatively
