I have a tendency to always focus on what I don’t know. To always look at all of the things that exist that I know nothing about and feel small and uninformed in comparison to all these things that exist that I want to know and do and experience. So it is refreshing on occasion, to have to step back and help someone who is where I was with a skill years ago. As I prepare to teach them, show them, guide them, it makes me realize how much I’ve learned. How much I’ve picked up and absorbed and has become second nature for me. It makes me realize how much of my own knowledge I take for granted. I’m good at what I do for a living. There is a lot I want to learn and a lot I need to learn since this industry is changing dramatically and will for at least the next few years until some new standards are accepted. It’s intimidating looking at everything that I will need to learn. But it seems less daunting and more exciting after looking at everything I have learned.
