Increase the depth of exploration-woodmam


 His mother began to take Hertz to his uncle's house frequently, giving him the opportunity to receive his influence and education. After several encounters, his uncle discovered Hertz's special talent in mathematics and science and was happy to make time from his busy schedule to provide Hertz with a systematic early education. Hertz was also very fond of his uncle and accepted his teachings seriously. He grew rapidly in knowledge and further developed his keen interest in mathematical and scientific sciences, mastering some preliminary mathematical and logical methods.

  Although Hertz's uncle died young at the age of 37, he had become a role model in Hertz's mind and played a huge role in his development throughout his life.

  Similarly encountering a valuable piece of information may open the door to your thinking and lead to success. The seminal work of modern genetics, the final establishment of the double helix structure of the DNA molecule, was obtained from the interpretation of a diffraction map of a DNA molecule from a different perspective:.

  Watson and Crick had been working on the structure of the DNA molecule for quite a long time, but were never able to obtain a satisfactory explanation. They initially predicted that the DNA molecule was a triple helix structure, but could not get the correct calculation anyway. Then, by chance, they got a diffraction pattern of a DNA molecule taken by a physicist. For the physicist, he did not consider what value this diffraction map would have from a biological point of view. For Watson and Crick, however, it was a windfall, because by calculating the diffraction map data, it was possible to prove from several parameters that they determined the helix of the DNA molecule. After the calculations, the two of them finally constructed the double helix structure of the DNA molecule and published a paper of just over a thousand words. It was the major discovery described in this 1,000-word paper that later won them both the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine together.

  Einstein used a circle to represent the knowledge a person has. He said that the larger the circle, the more knowledge you have, while at the same time the larger the circle is exposed to the outside world, the more unknown. Therefore, enriching your information resources can enable you to understand the world around you from a broader perspective, ask more questions, expand your exploration space, and improve the depth of exploration.

  Cultivate the habit of constant exploration and have an open mind to new things. Lu Ke, by far the youngest member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is the current leader in the field of nanotechnology in China. It seems that he embarked on the path of researching nanotechnology by chance, but behind this chance is an open mind to new things.

  One day he had nothing to do and heard someone say that a foreign expert was going to give a lecture on nanotechnology, so he went to listen to the report with the attitude of listening to it. Unexpectedly, the more he listened, the more he became addicted to it, and the more he listened, the more interesting he found it, and later he simply turned to nanotechnology research. It was this turn that opened up an unprecedentedly wide space for him and provided him with the possibility of great success.

  3. Self-assessment

  Assessing your own habits of inquiry can be done through some of the following questions.

  Can you list the issues that interest you? The more you can list, the better.

  For the questions you listed above, did you try to answer them? What methods did you use to try? How many of them resulted in a satisfactory answer?

  Did you come up with any innovative ideas? Which of these ideas were appreciated by others and which others did not think?

  Are you sometimes fascinated by a random phenomenon and observe and study it for a long time until you get a satisfactory explanation?

  Have you ever argued with others about some hot social phenomena? Do your arguments have a distinctive character?

  Do you often like to do experiments to test the ideas of others or the knowledge you learned in school?

  Do you pay attention to the popular professions circulating in the society, the "Top Ten Science and Technology News" awarded by various media every year, and the latest discoveries reported in the news? Did you learn more about these information through various means, such as searching the Internet, newspapers, magazines, or consulting teachers?

  Do you have people around you who are leading you to develop your potential and your ability to excel?

  Have you ever been on an adventure? Have you encountered any real dangers? Could those dangers have been avoided?

  Have you ever been reprimanded by your parents for exploring something, such as dismantling an item in the house like an alarm clock? After the reprimand, did you remain the same, or did you become so afraid to do these things that you are not interested in doing them anymore?

  Do you often pay attention to information that does not seem to be useful for improving your academic performance? What is your attitude if people think you are not doing your job?

  Have you ever gone on an adventure to an unfamiliar place? Do you have a kind of inexplicable panic when exploring? Or do you feel that there are things and phenomena everywhere that can cause amazement?

  Chapter 2 Correcting Bad Habits

  I. Aversion to learning

  1. Definition and connotation

  It is said that "those who know are better than those who are good, and those who are good are better than those who are happy". However, for many people, whether they are poor learners or good learners, learning has a strong "hard learning" color, are afraid of learning, aversion to learning. It can be seen that "hard learning" is not dependent on academic performance. The real "happy to learn" people and "happy" in what?

  "Aversion to learning" refers to learners in the learning process, due to intrinsic motivation reasons, or perhaps the influence of existing factors, the loss of interest and enthusiasm for learning activities and do not want to continue.

  "The survey found that the biggest difference between those who are "averse to learning" and those who are "happy to learn" lies in their mindset toward learning.

  Most people who are "averse to learning" regard learning as a chore that their parents and teachers require them to do, and treat knowledge as something they must master just to pass exams and get high marks, so they tend to be very uncommitted and reluctant when learning, not paying attention to summing up their experience and expanding, and are dragged forward by teaching, very passive, and learning The efficiency of learning is often low and the effect is poor. Therefore, even though people who are "averse to learning" are forced to work hard to achieve good academic results in primary and secondary school due to various learning requirements and pressure, they often give up learning and stop working hard once the requirements are gone, and become decadent and degenerate.

  People who are "happy to learn" do not attach great importance to their academic performance, they take the initiative to look for any meaningful books, newspapers, magazines, etc., and collect information from all aspects of life to enrich themselves; once they start learning, they are very involved and rarely distracted; they like to trace the root of the problems they find and find out the context; they like to apply the knowledge they have learned to the future. Once they start to study, they are very devoted and rarely get distracted; they like to investigate the problems they find and find out the reasons for them; they like to apply the knowledge they learn and relate it to their real life; they treat their study as their own business and do not need to be reminded by teachers and parents, and plan and arrange their study and life in a reasonable way. It can be said that for people who "enjoy learning", learning is a way to understand life, society and nature, and through learning, they can solve various problems and problems they encounter, thus gaining a sense of accomplishment and success.
