Usually I wouldn't write a second blog post in one day, but I wanted to share a quick thought.
I've been spending a lot of my time in education and training programs recently. And I've learned two key things:
1. Be a permanent beginner. That is, be open to learning, even if you think you know about a topic. You'll find you may learn just the right nugget to bring things together.
2. The most important things you learn often come from the people in the program and not the teachers, so even if you're an introvert, like me, put yourself out there, and listen to the stories of others. They're so incredibly powerful.
