The Learner’s Opportunity
The valuable insight we find in rethinking what we once thought grants us wisdom that helps us to make real time adjustments. Those adjustments allow us to not only be reactive to things we didn’t anticipate in our original plan or method, but to also learn. The wisdom gained from the humble attitude of a learner usually sets the successful apart from the rest of the pack. This is why we honor them with trophies and other awards. Despite recent expectations that awards should be given to everyone to spare feelings of inadequacy, that’s how the world actually works. In a day when everyone expects a trophy for participation, we all have an opportunity to push ahead through a small amount of rethinking.
