At Least This Helps Make My Point

So when is someone ready to learn? I know from experience that a willingness to learn is always a great place to start, but it doesn’t come with an absolute guarantee. Sometimes it comes down to ability.

(And to give an example of how willingness doesn’t always equate to ability, while I’m feeling much better than I did yesterday, my willingness to think coherently today isn’t granting me the ability, so I’m going to wrap this up for now.)
