Meaning of "unlearn +"
"unlearn" is to try to forget your usual way of doing something so that you can learn a new and sometimes better way, and broaden your horizons farther.
It is about challenging the established, and questioning the accepted.
It’s not about ignoring what you already know, but it’s about being brave enough to question it and break down old rules so we can write new ones.
