Let's discuss being puzzled. What causes you to scratch your head, gaze unknowingly ahead, and simply stand or sit there uncertain of what to do next.
This happens to little kids all of the time. Life is one big puzzle and they absorb new information, sights and sounds every single day, and an overwhelming amount of it too.
Sometimes they get overwhelmed and frustrated, but very often they will try really hard to simply work it out.
They feel no disgrace in failure, especially when they are very young. It's beautiful to watch and makes me want to adopt their approach:
Look at it
If all else fails, ask for help.
Adults have a much bigger issue with being puzzled but seriously, if we approach things as toddlers do, we might have an easier time of learning something new.
