Learnstream time is a linear chronological view of time. Similar to how Eric Freeman and David Gelernter originally described lifestreaming ”…a time-ordered stream…”
However, when you are learnstreaming, your time is not linear. I think about time similar to Richard Koch’s description in his popular The 80/20 Principle “time being the benign link between the past, present, and future.” The image above is an adaptation of his time triad.
“Viewed in this way, the future is not a random movie that we are halfway through, aware of (and terrified by) time whizzing past. Rather, the future is a dimension of the present and the past, giving us the opportunity to create something better.”
When you view the past as part of your present, it helps you to remember to bring the best part of your past with you into the present moment to help make a better future.
What about you? What are your most valued learning experience that you bring with you into the future? If you’re not sure, take some time to consider this questions as you may not be maximizing your learning time.
