‘People don’t really learn when you tell them something. They don’t even really learn when they do something. They start learning, start creating new neural pathways, only when they have a chance to recall and reflect on what just happened.’*
I often hear people sharing things they miss the “glory” of.
Robert McKee writes about how movies allow us to both experience something and to reflect upon it. We don’t get the chance to reflect on life very often.**
It doesn’t particularly matter what kind of reflection you make your own, but reflecting on life opens up possibilities of greater glory, like being able to mark an experience on a map so you can go there many times.
