You're probably not learning

By nature, I like to feel good

I don't want stress. I want to feel peaceful.

But real learning happens with discomfort

The more embarrassed you are, the more you have to learn. For coding, if you push yourself, you will feel confused. It's uncomfortable

As humans, we optimize for this comfort

It's the anti-thesis to true learning.

The reason for Schools and Coaches

That's why these guys are necessary. They push us a little past our comfort. But when they're gone? We return back to comfort

I try to game my brain

I try to challenge myself to something. The discomfort of failing a challenge matches the discomfort of the actual challenge

The goal is to maximize my learning.

What about reading? Learning but likely not painful either
