Value the Learners


We don’t want to learn anymore because that would imply we aren’t capable yet. We want to be competent.

Yet our work is about creating something that has not existed before: a product, a new version, a service, a policy, a system.

So we must learn and be learners. We must experiment, succeed and fail, and iterate.

We tend to value other people who have the answers. We tend to judge ourselves by what we know. This would be fine if what we need was something that was already known. Perhaps it’s time to value the learners more.


In your corner,
