Unlearning

Learning is about more than simply acquiring new knowledge and insights; it is also crucial to unlearn old knowledge that has outlived its relevance. Thus, forgetting is probably at least as important as learning. - Gary Ryan Blair

While looking for quotes on relevance (to add to my SEO post...still haven't found any relevant relevance quote :p) I stumbled on this really wise quote. Whoever this Gary Ryan Blair is pretty wise. Anyway it started me thinking about stuff I need to unlearn.

1. Typing habits.
2. Whacked out body clock.
3. Automatic response to any criticism help from my mom and Mark.

Am sure there's a whole lot more but the point is he's right I do need to unlearn stuff to learn new things. What's the stuff you need to unlearn?
