In other words—be a learner, not a knower.

It takes courage to admit you don’t know something.

The pressure to know is undoubtedly great. Knowing gives you status in the classroom and in society.

The fight for the “knower” status starts early. This fight cripples the learner.

Don’t believe it? Spend some time with people you believe to be knowers. You’ll quickly realize, they were learners all along.
