Repetitive Learning

It’s arguable whether or not conciousness is involved with learning at all – but if consciousness is not involved, why bother to do drills? Why does drill-work (whether in martial arts, math, etc) help us, when it seems to have little to do with the output?

Perhaps all the repetition is simply to bore our conscious mind into getting out of the picture. There are lots of examples of where “thinking too much” interferes with a well-learned process. Try riding a bike while paying close attention to what you are doing!

If we could bore our consciousness more easily, perhaps we could learn tasks a lot more easily…
