A person going by the name of “ford” left a very interesting comment to my post about it taking 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. Here was the comment:
“The moment one gets into the `expert’ state of mind a great number of things become impossible” – Henry Ford
Pretty good manufacturing guy…be careful becoming an expert…
I absolutely love comments like this. They challenge me. They make me re-think things. They help me re-focus on what’s truly important.
And for the record, I completely agree with what Henry Ford said (I’m assuming he said it at least?). You see, if someone thinks they are an expert they may stop trying to learn new things which, in the end, is a deadly mistake if you ask me.
Confident, Never Satisfied
Perhaps the better approach is to feel confident in your skills… but never satisfied. Do you agree? Is being a so called expert actually a curse?
