Hi, my name is Mary and I like books 🤓
In my early years, I wouldn't have considered myself a ‘fast learner’ in the traditional sense; my high school maths teacher once emphatically proclaimed; “Mary, you should drop maths and do home economics!”. Publicly embarrassed and frustrated, I made the mistake of believing her, consequently disregarding future investment towards improving with the subject.
It took me years to start believing in myself after feeling academically inadequate. As a young adult, I decided that I was going to work. Hard. Determined to understand not only what I was doing but taking the time to understand the why. I started to realise that for me to absorb information, I needed context.
My professional journey thus far has taught me many things, these are my top three:
Understanding how you learn is critical
Focus and discipline lead to successful execution
Cultivate curiosity, it's an underrated superpower
