Cultivate Your Beginner’s Mind
Beginners may lack experience and skills but they make up for it in hunger, curiosity, and naïveté. Outsiders often innovate within an industry because they question the norms and bring a fresh perspective to the space.
But as beginners develop their skills and gain expertise, drive turns to comfort, curiosity turns to ego, and naïveté becomes jadedness.
A true master has the experience and judgment of an expert but the mindset of a beginner.
