This thought for the day reminds me of why I will always be a student of one thing or another. Nothing that we learn is ever completely understood until we look at it through someone else’s eyes. Because every time you do this, you find out that there’s a gap in your own education. No one person will ever see a problem from every angle. There are just too many angles to cover. And each person who attempts to learn this adds one more measurement that changes the angle yet again.
So, if you really want to understand a subject, then try teaching it to others. I learned this lesson years ago while I was a tech writer. And it’s a lesson that continues to push my learning curve, so that I’ll never stop trying to understand a subject. If I do stop, it’ll be because I no longer have the energy to keep going. And I am not looking forward to that day EVER.
