If I only knew! Tue, Sep 22, 2015
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
“When one has finished building one's house, one suddenly realizes that in the process one has learned something that one really needed to know in the worst way - before one began.”
– Freidrich Nietzsche
I chose this quote today because it made me laugh. I instantly thought of all of the project that ended with this sort of epiphany. That “if I only knew this when I started” feeling is something we have all experienced. This quote also got me thinking about the times when I have had this sort of feeling on a much smaller scale. It reminded me that it is also important to make sure to take the time to think about what I can learn from every task I complete. Most of us here are naturally curious by nature and enjoy learning new things so this comes pretty natural to jump in and attack new challenges. A great thing about this approach and type of personality is that it is possible to focus this same energy on everyday tasks, in fact, it is a good way to keep those tasks interesting and constantly improve
Thanks team, have a great rest of your week!
