Here's blog Quote #631...
"Don't learn to do, but learn in doing."
Not quite certain what Butler is getting at here?
I'll take a shot at it. My interpretation:
First, 'learn to do' vs. 'learn in doing' is to go through the motions vs. enjoying, or being engaged in the action.
My second thought was 'to do'= get it done without learning much vs. 'learn in doing' implies some absorption and educating of yourself in the process of the do-ing.
In summation, perhaps Butler is suggesting --if we are going to do something-- make sure there is something of value to come from the effort rather than blindly just time wasting, and robotically going through motions?
That's my view---How did you take this quote?
