You Haven't Taught, Until They Have Learned

You Haven't Taught, Until They Have Learned

Teaching is the best way to learn. You would know this if you have ever taught anyone anything.

Teaching requires extensive knowledge and a little bit of practical experience. The process of teaching people allows you to further analyze the process of learning.

As a kid, I was taught how to ski and snowboard by my Dad. He had never stepped on a snowboard himself, but he studied other riders on the hill while he was skiing and passed his knowledge on to me. After three years of snowboarding, I challenged my Dad to try it for the first time to prove he wasn’t just all talk.

By lunch he was carving and by the end of the day he was doing expert runs. This shows how teaching someone else can actually teach yourself.

This analogy can be applied to a variety of situations, but the principle remains the same. Be open to learning and be willing to teach others when they need a hand.

“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” -Albert Einstein
