First, you show up – on time, with an open mind, ready to take everything in.
Then you listen – patiently, attentively, without judgment or interruption.
You act on what you have heard, putting it into practice, seeing what works and what doesn’t, iterating along the way.
And when those three have been done, you will have learned something.
Sometimes we forget what goes into the first three to get to learning, master one, forget the other two.
Look back at what you have ever learned and you will realize, you always need the first three to be successul.
