I dred the perennial “New Year’s Resolution,” that uncompromising deal I make with myself to do something I should have been doing right along, but haven’t.
But on the brighter, encouraging, side it shows me that I don’t think of myself as the smartest person in the room but rather that I’m always hoping to be a better person, a person hungry to learn more and more, from people lots smarter than me.
The mistake I made was sharing those things I learned, sharing them with people who don’t have that same longing to learn. For me it’s hard to imagine that anyone wouldn’t want to learn something they didn’t know; they would then be free to share their new-found knowledge with others who might want to learn.
How does one NOT want to know more? That’s the mystery, isn’t it?
