I read some time ago an article on expertness vs. learning - experts rarely are able to explain their methods in a manner that makes sense or is useful to others. For example a pilot in training is told a specific order in which to scan the instruments on the plane. But an expert pilot rarely scans the instruments in that order, he/she simply glances at the instrument that gives the specific information needed at that time. Similarly, an expert at spotting cancer cells from biopsy tissue can't explain what to look for, they just know the bad cells when they see 'em.
I guess the main thing I've learned over the last few days is, "Just Do It."
