Your brain houses billions of cells called neurons. Neurons connect with other neurons at points called synapses.
When one neuron lights up with energy, it also passes that energy to other neurons via its synapses. If the energy surge is strong enough, then all the connected neurons will light up, too, and then all the neurons connected to those neurons in a vast fan of energy that branches across part of your brain. The network of neurons that this wave of energy flows through is called a neural network.
These neural networks are responsible for most everything we do. When you play a B minor chord on guitar, one network lights up. When you play a C major, another network lights up.
Learning is all about building stronger, faster, and more accurate networks in your brain. But poor learning strategies will build weak networks. You’ll struggle with wrong notes, forgetting parts, and will otherwise make lots of mistakes. This is why learning well matters.
