Where did Mary get the idea for Learn One Thing?
"A fellow in one of my classes gave me the idea for Learn One Thing. During student introductions, this lad commented, 'I am taking this class because I just wanna learn this one thing,' he said, holding up his index finger. Relieved it wasn't the middle digit he was displaying, the ah-ha lightbulb went off in my head. Of course! Who has time to learn a whole buncha things at once? No one. And, if we humans are confronted with too many options, we are overwhelmed and do nothing. We get into a rut. Yet our brains are working dogs. They need lots of exercise."
