Alvin Toffler calls this method of instruction “unlearning.” In times of dramatic change, when your old habits are preventing you from succeeding against new odds, you have to first see what trouble your old habits get you into. Before you can move forward, you have to see your best intuitions, skills, and patterns not only aren’t helping you move forward; they are what are holding you back.
