The Cow

The Cow is a pedagogical tool that you with advantage can use in the beginning of the module. It clearly shows the difference between not understanding at all what is in front of you, the insecure, confused feeling connected to that state, and the feeling of well-being when you finally see what you are expected to see.
It is easy to connect “the Cow” with the actual work you are going to begin.

  • When you do not see (do not have the knowledge), it is hard to come up with a good result
  • When you see (have the knowledge), the chance to come up with a good result is so much greater.
