I want to change my thought process when I’m studying something particularly challenging/intimidating, to seek out a flaw of any kind (a spelling/grammar error, for example) to dismiss it entirely. It’s like I do it subconsciously to guard myself from feeling inadequate for not understanding the material.
I feel this is something that I’ve carried with me for most of my life. I think I’ve identified it, and I must eliminate it if I want to bring progress to my way of learning new things. Maybe in the process of documenting it here, I will start to learn how to drop it from my thought process.
