I finished reading The Art of Learning by Josh Waitzkin this weekend. Here's a few more of my favorite quotes from the remainder of the book:
"...I have to take risks others would avoid, always optimizing the learning potential of the moment and turning adversity to my advantage."
"You have to make obstacles spur you to creative new angles in the learning process. Let setbacks deepen your resolve."
"It is all too easy to get caught up in the routines of our lives and to lose creativity in the learning process."
