You need to be able to figure things out for yourself.
"The method of methods is learning a system for self-experimentation and making it your own. You can then take this basic process and apply it to the next thing."
This is a great article. And this is a good takeaway. I also like the idea that your method should be beyond mental models. I work with self-directed young people on intention/reflection cycles but I am wondering if I need to make my questions more likely to provoke answers that are more embodied, to avoid the trap of just giving them mental models.
