There are five steps to this process:
- Write down what you know
- Decide what you want to learn
- Choose a source of information
- Learn from your source
- Use what you learn
When you complete the fifth step, you start over again. Systematically you can fill in all the gaps. After you organize and design a system for yourself, you will find that step one is easily accomplished.
If you examine a pedigree chart, it’s easy to see the missing puzzle pieces and determine what you need to learn. From there you can choose a source of information, review the source, and record new information. Then the process starts over as you identify new holes in your puzzle.
