Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

Always Learning

I was fortunate enough to have a teacher, mentor and friend whose personal manifesto was this:

Always learning – always teaching.

He personified these values and drilled them into those he taught. His edict was to expect that you would teach others what he taught you, and that with each iteration the knowledge would become deeper and more refined.

His relentless desire to continue learning was an inspiration and his obsession with teaching provided a real world example of how giving can move humanity forward.

Always learning – always teaching.

Some people leave an indelible, lasting impression – your life is richer having known them.
