Learning about my learning.

They call it double-loop learning.

Apparently there’s even triple- and quadruple-loops.

Can’t remember what they mean/refer to now, but the images make me think of springs. Or gloriously mindless doodles.



Yup – Skunkwworks.

My real-world learning lab. Part organic, part systematic. Part confident, part stomach-butterflies. Part-planned, part-spontaneous. And lots more types of part-this, part-that etc…

First “lab” project. Realised how much I’ve forgotten. Realised how much I’d known and built up over the years – so blessed.

Somewhere in the middle of that long but adrenaline-driven evening, I realised with a gasp: double-loop learning!


Because I’ll never pass this way again.

We can only learn how to do something for the first time, once. 

We can unlearn and re-learn, but we never get the chance to learn it with totally new eyes, ever again.

So I must capture it. Not just what I learn, but the process/journey of getting there.

For what?

I don’t know, frankly…

Just do it.

It’ll make sense later.
