What did you learn today?

We often reflect at the end of a day, or even during that day on several occasions, about the things we messed up, didn’t do, did wrong, said wrong and then we can go back to the day before, the week before, the month, year…and so on. We can trawl through all the disasters and dredge them up.

What if we just asked ourselves instead ‘what did I learn today?’.

Maybe things would get even better, worth a try, as I am sure we’ve all been down the ‘beating ourselves up’ road and that doesn’t lead anywhere great.

An answer

It’s useful to have an answer in an exam or if you’re on a game show.

Other than that, it’s better to have more questions than answer.

Then it’s best for us to listen.

There is no shame in not knowing something. There is more shame in not bothering to find out what others know.

The more we ask the more we learn and learning and knowledge avoids judgements based on nothing much.
