I’m being relatively slow and deliberate in putting together my list of 10 Ways to Be Better Learner (See No. 1 and No. 2), and one reason for is that I’ve been sifting through past posts on Mission to Learn to see which ideas and themes tend to come up again and again. As part of that process, I thought I’d highlight five of my favorite posts from the learning habits category here on Mission to Learn.
If you happen to be a new reader here, I’d recommend clicking through the learning habits posts as a way to get a feel for what the blog is all about. Here, however, are five posts from that category I think are worth highlighting:

Ever wonder why all those self help books take up so much space in your local Barnes & Noble? Here’s why.
- 7 Learning Lessons from a Toddler
I’m betting most parents can come up with three or four before they even click the link.
- 3 Key Practices of the “Sophisticated” Learner
