Most people know that the best way to check that we understand something is to be able to explain it to others.

Consider the lessons for us in the following:

  • We learn:
  • 10% of what we read
  • 20% of what we hear
  • 30% of what we see
  • 50% of what we both see and hear
  • 70% of what is discussed with others
  • 80% of what we experience personally
  • 90% of what we TEACH to someone else
