I recently moved to London to rejoin my wife while she finishes school and continues on to work on her PhD. Before that, I shut down my business and moved from California back to Pennsylvania, and spent about six weeks there, sorting stuff and preparing for the London move.
Needless to say, I’ve been busy. But that time was also filled with much contemplation of what I want this site to be, what I want my career to be, and what I want ME to be. Ideally, all three of those things will meet here. This will be a process of reinvention.
I will be sharing short posts as frequently as possible as I work toward this goal of reinvention, ideally, something poignant that I learned recently through experience, study, or observation.
Today, I observed how foolish a person looks when he tries to play devil’s advocate or attempts to look superior and doesn’t have the basic knowledge to support his line of thinking.
The challenge to me is to really dig in my learning, and go deep. Would you rather ask business advice from someone who went to a marketing seminar once, or the person who has built several successful businesses? Who has built their knowledge to the most useful level?
I have a desire to teach and share what I see to be a better way of living, but I can always learn more.
Have you ever felt foolish because you got caught without knowledge? Let me know in the comments if you’re brave enough and learned a great lesson!
