Have you shifted a paradigm recently?
Paradigms are philosophical and theoretical frameworks that we all employ in our minds to help us navigate the world. Whenever someone experiences a radical change in perspective, we tend to say that they underwent a paradigm shift.
Tiago Forte believes that to succeed in our information abundant world, we need to undergo a set a paradigm shifts regarding how we understand and work with knowledge. In a recent post on his blog, he explores a new way to think about the purpose of his course, Building a Second Brain:
“This may sound strange, but I increasingly believe that the purpose of this course is not to give students new ideas. It’s not even to give them useful techniques. Endless ideas and techniques are already out there for the taking. No, the purpose of this course is to take people through a series of personal paradigm shifts in their relationship to technology, knowledge, and the new world that is evolving ever faster.”
Tiago believe the course allows for at least twenty paradigm shifts! Have you gone through any of them yet?
