Look, I'm a pretty smart cookie (as my grandfather would have said). And I'm an addict. So, I always have this inner monologue going in my head. Which is terribly annoying and loud.
I also know a lot about a few things. On the other hand, I know a lot about many different things.
This is a benefit. And also a handicap.
There's a part of my brain that, when someone's trying to teach me something, says, "Eh, I know that already," and shuts off.
And maybe I did know that thing. But maybe I didn't know the thing that they said after it. Which was valuable and may be just the thing that I needed to hear, but I had already shut down.
So, this week, I have the opportunity to be at a fabulous conference (yesterday and today) and I'm practicing REALLY listening. Even if I already know the answers. Even if I think I'm an expert.
Who knows what I might learn?
