Lesson Number 9: Be open to the lessons


One of my bosses said to me recently that ‘you keep learning the same lesson until you learn it’.

We learned so much stuff during the past year and not all of it came from the experience we ourselves were going through.

We saw what was happening to people close to us and would often ask ourselves…

“How can we make sure stuff like that happens to us?”

… or …

“How can we make sure stuff like that doesn’t happen to us?”

The chats these two questions inspired are going to prove invaluable going forward.

Life comes without a manual but if you look around you hard enough (and keep your mind open enough) you’ll quickly learn everything you need to know.
