Looking back on my time with Robert Kiyosaki at The Rich Dad Company, a common theme that was there throughout was the study of how people learn.

The best diagram I've seen that illustrates how much the method of learning impacts how much we retain, is the Cone of Learning.

Created by Edgar Dale in 1969, The Cone Of Learning lists, from worst to best, the passive and active ways we learn and how the affect our retention.

Not surprising, reading and lecture are the two WORST ways of learning. And how are we expected to learn in school? That's right...

Reading and lecture.


What is the best way to learn?

Doing the real thing. Actually getting into action and doing the very thing you want to learn.

Why is doing the real thing so much more effective than reading or lecture? Because it is active. Where as reading and lecture are passive.

Being involved increases your retention dramatically. It requires that you use both your left brain and your right brain.

It sets it in stone.

The subject of learning and teaching were at the core of everything at The Rich Dad Company.
