Brett Terpstra describes his way of learning:
“My entire life I’ve been “bad” at school. I can’t sit through lectures, and I can’t concentrate on reading assignments. I can read, and I can comprehend, but it takes great effort to focus on what is being said and to block out my own thought patterns. I learn by doing, and I only learn things that are of interest or immediately applicable to me.”
…loved this specific thought from Brett. My mind has worked the same in these settings.
