Learn on the Run

Learning can and should be done on the run when possible. School is not necessarily about learning facts but rather learning research methods, respect for authority, collaboration, and how to deliver the expected result of another. Stopping to “go to more school” is often an excuse to sit out the most exciting battles or competitions. Learning on the run is the only true education one can hope for because it is how the actual job will operate. There is no pause button in real life that allows us to refer to the users manual. We must move, make mistakes in motion, and learn as we go. If we stop to learn too often, we will never actually go anywhere and the cowards on the team will continue to hide behind the next training course, degree, or lesson without any accountability for progress. Progress in education is far less than progress in real life but it feels like something worthwhile.
