Soul Food for Friday: John Wooden on Learning

In honor of the tip off to NCAA basketball, this week’s Soul Food for Friday comes from coaching legend John Wooden.

Wooden was not only a legendary coach, but also a legendary life teacher. He came up with his own laws of learning and this week’s Soul Food for Friday:

“The four laws of learning are explanation, demonstration, imitation, and repetition. The goal is to create a correct habit that can be produced instinctively under great pressure. To make sure this goal was achieved, I created 8 laws of learning: namely, explanation, demonstration, imitation, repetition, repetition, repetition, repetition, and repetition.”

So what are your key laws for learning?
