I don’t know about you, but as I get older, I’m starting to recognize the value of life’s education.
Not the stories about how many miles someone walked in the snow to get to school – without shoes!
Education that creates a practical starting point and can be adapted if needed.
The real world is less black and white and often requires a compromise, an adjustment or solution bordering on the ‘grey area’.
Knowing the basis for a recommendation is key.
It helps me evaluate the information provided and along with a conversation, improves my understanding and commitment to the proposed solution.
I can’t possibly know as much as the expert, but I do like to exercise my gray matter!
Formal education teaches us to learn and provides a basis for critical thinking.
Our informal education creates curiosity and a sense of humor.
A combination of formal and informal education will create the best solution.
Leveraging formal knowledge, solutions are explained and adjusted for real life resulting in practical solutions!
