Clint Eastwood’s fountain of Youth: Learning
See this interview today.
Quote: “By 76, most directors have put their heavy lifting behind them, their pace slowing, the quality of their films waning. Not Clint Eastwood.”
Clint Eastwood: “My father always said you’ve got to keep learning, keep expanding or you will decline the other way. I’ve always adhered to that.”
Wise words. I would add that the journey of life means constant learning. That is what our brains need.
See some brain images that explain the process of learning a new skill, from what happens when we first encounter it, to what is going on while we are internalizing it in a transition mode, to what happens once it is familiar thanks to practice.
And what is Learning? you may enjoy this interview with neurobiologist and educator Dr. James Zull. Good night!
