“Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think.”
– Albert Einstein
The best way to train your mind to think is to be aware of continually connecting the right and left hemispheres. You may be more comfortable with left-brain facts, listing the pieces to a puzzle however, the right brain must connect to putting the pieces together. Make sure your right brain grabs the parts of a challenge and has opportunities to brainstorm for solutions. The facts alone become meaningful when put in a right-brain purpose for ways to use them.
