Check out a great excerpt from Tom Vanderbilt’s new book, Beginners: The Joy and Transformative Power of Lifelong Learning. In the piece he highlights five insights from the book: 1) using the power of the beginner mind unfettered by prior learning and experience; 2) learning from beginners who regularly experience failure; 3) if you already know what you are doing, you should not be doing it; 4) avoid overthinking; and 5) you are never too old to learn something new.

These lessons are useful guides for those engaged in self-directed learning at any age. They are both inspirational and informative.
