Most people approach learning through an additive model.

Each experience adds-to your net learning.

As you grow, you gain knowledge and insight.

There is also a distillation model of learning.

Each experience refines your net learning.

As you grow, you distill your genius into something more effective and potent.

The distillation model better represents how the brain organizes.

It makes an important distinction: you learn by letting go of what you previously believed to be true.

Rather than continually building upon a fixed foundation, you are constantly distilling into simplicity.

Growth does not correlate to a net increase.

Leaders construct conditions that challenge them to learn through distillation.
