‘Learning is an experience. Everything else is just information’ – Albert Einstein

Ever since I read this powerful statement by a German-born theoretical physicist, our super intelligent Mr. Albert Einstein, it has changed my perspective of looking at learning and development process. In such simple words, he has given me wisdom to think about making my each training an experience than a boring classroom session; an experience which people remember for lifetime, a happy learning experience which is a transition from being someone to being someone better, an experience which has made a difference.

Let me break down the learning process with a relevant example to decipher this statement and understand it well.

Learning starts with awareness
An awareness that I need to learn this in order to move forward or change something in my life is the first step towards learning. Learning without the awareness of its requirement doesn’t really help. For an example, an awareness that I need become a healthy person is the first step towards learning how to become a healthy person.

It needs a lot of assumptions and information
Second step towards learning is assuming a lot of things and gathering information basis on those assumption. For an example, the assumption for becoming a healthy person is that I need to look lean and to look lean I need to lose weight. And then all the information is being gathered from reliable sources about how to lose weight. As per your information, you start dieting by starving and depriving from food you like and eating the food which are considered to be healthy.

Expert’s advice
An expert’s advice is the third step towards your learning curve where an expert validates whether your assumptions and information are right or wrong. An expert also gives you the right direction to move if you are heading towards something wrong. For above example, an expert here will tell you that being lean is not being healthy, but health is a state of complete physical well-being by eating right amount of food at right time with exercising and balancing all the required nutrients. So your assumption here towards a good health is redirected.

Planning how to learn
Now when an expert has directed the learning towards right direction, the fourth step towards learning comes when you ask yourself questions like ‘What does it require out of me?’, ‘what is my role going to be and how do I achieve it?’.  For example, now you will plan a schedule for your food intakes and exercises like whether to go to a gym or hire a personal trainer or go and learn yoga or just do normal walk every day.

Experiencing and learning
Now when we know the right information and we are sure that we are going in right direction to achieve our objective, the learning process starts with an actual experience of it. For an example, you might realise that your hunger still remains the same, your food intake still remains the same, your taste buds are still being satisfied and you are not compromising on anything you feel like eating but all you are doing is eating smaller portions, at slower pace and at regular intervals in a day and within 6 months you lose fat from your body and experience your first transition of learning curve for becoming healthy.

Now that’s how learning anything is an experience and rest all is just information.

At, we understand this process thoroughly and make sure that all the learning services we provide go through all these steps right from getting aware about what needs to be learnt to learning it through an experience in right direction suggested by our experts of the field.
