ALL OF US, REPEATEDLY, BELIEVE THAT OUR OWN PREVIOUS MISTAKES, AND THE LESSONS AVAILABLE TO US FROM OTHERS’ MISTAKES, DO NOT APPLY SINCE, “THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT.”

SOME PEOPLE LEARN LIFE’S LESSONS BY READING, WATCHING, LISTENING, AND SPEAKING WITH OTHERS. OTHER PEOPLE LEARN THEIR LIFE LESSONS BY DOING AND EXPERIENCING (often, requiring repeated exposures). OUR PARENTS HOPE THAT THE FORMER IS ENOUGH FOR US, BUT MANY OF US SEEM TO RESPOND ONLY TO THE LATTER.

ALL FORMS OF EDUCATION ARE ABOUT OBTAINING INFORMATION AND WISDOM TO BE USED IN THE HERE AND NOW. JUST AS IMPORTANT IS HOW EDUCATION TEACHES US HOW TO BECOME EVEN BETTER, AND MORE CURIOUS, INDEPENDENT LEARNERS.

EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY, PEOPLE ARE SCRAMBLING TO FIGURE THINGS OUT FOR THEMSELVES. GIVE THEM ROOM TO STUMBLE, EVEN IF THEY END UP LANDING ON YOU. HELP CUSHION THEIR FALL. THE UNSTATED AGREEMENT IS THAT THEY WILL DO THE SAME FOR YOU OR THEY WILL PAY IT FORWARD TO OTHERS.
