Struggle on Purpose
Lifting weights is essentially struggling on purpose.
We understand how muscles are built – so we pick a weight and exercise that induces resistance and tension, which leads to struggle, which leads to growth.
Learning can be the same.
When we teach people how their learning machine (brain) actually works – and that creativity, innovation, and growth ALL come from the obstacles, challenges, set backs, and change that lead to desirable struggle…
We can start to seek out those situations – and struggle on purpose.
Which is exactly what great learners (Jungle Tigers) do.
