Teaching as a learning tool.

“Teaching made me so much better at studying.”
– Ann Patchett

In The Getaway Car: A Practical Memoir About Writing and Life, Ann Patchett remembers how teaching her first literature class forced her to think through her ideas, support them with examples and then present them in a logical way.

If you’re trying to master a new management technique, consider presenting a team workshop or training session around that topic. Teaching it to others will enhance your own learning, and working on a public timeline will keep you moving forward.

Whether you’re an aspiring writer or just enjoy learning how someone masters a craft, I highly recommend downloading Patchett’s Kindle Single.
