What should be your first step in becoming astute:?

About the title: an astute person is a person who can see things for what they are
On the Tree of Knowledge we are taught to listen to words instead of looking at reality.
In essence we are cut off from our direct experience of life. ((and become highly manipulated and manipulable. A friend of mine is a great fan of Trump. He never actually heard anything he said, all was filtered through words he already knew about him, confirming that he, Trump, is this great guy, this smart guy, this amazing guy who is going to make him (my friend) rich.))
In my classes the biggest challenge is to cause the students to see. Unless the seeing comes with words, explanation, they can’t see.
See patterns, see the story behind a picture, see cause and effect, see similarity, see differences, see what they need to see to maneuver life.

Astute is a person who can see things for what they are without having to ask for help, explanation, etc.
