What is Reflection?

It's a way of not doing the same thing, the same way; but always expecting better results (the classic definition of managerial insanity). It is a:

1. Mental process allowing you to monitor your behavior.

2. Method for determining what's working and what's not. 

3. Way to monitor practice to keep improving it.

4. Learned process accelerating the drive to mastery.

It's true, most people DON'T LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE and they practice a skill, but SHOW NO IMPROVEMENT OR SLOW IMPROVEMENT. The reason why? They don't use reflection. At very powerful technique that's rarely taught in universities (see story below)

Learning reflection in this online course will help you to:

  • Not make the same mistake again,
  • Learn from experience, and
  • Enhance practice,

Reflection is a learnable method to determine what's working and what's not.

A Personal Story On The Importance of Reflection

To my lasting regret, understanding of reflection came much too late in life. What happened was this.

When I was 52 years old, I accidentally learned about reflection. I happened to be sitting in a lecture at Korea University in Seoul. The course delved into world religions and this particular lecture dealt with Buddhism.

The professor mentioned that Buddhism had a long tradition of learning through reflection. This aroused me from my normal state of lethargic mindlessness and I asked the professor, “What is reflection exactly?”

She replied that it was a mental process where you periodically step back and think about an experience and then figure out what went well and what could have gone better. And then she said, “The school of life teaches; but only if you are willing to reflect on experience.”

Here I was, a creature of the university. Much of my life was spent in a library with my nose in the textbook or in a state of confusion reading scholarly research journals. And yet, I had never been exposed to one of the most valuable tools of learning ever.  — Murray Johannsen, Course Developer & Instructor
