Yesterday we talked about the lessons learned from how an official shared his knowledge of volleyball officiating with me.
Today, let’s talk about three things I think we can do as receivers of knowledge.
1) Be committed to being better in anything and everything that you do. Whether it’s your job or a hobby be intentional about being better at it. How much? Even just one percent. (See Sept. 21 post)
2) Listen to learn.
Bryant McGill said “One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.”
Try not to listen to immediately think of a defensive response. Listen out of respect, especially those with more knowledge in a subject matter than we have.
3) Don’t be a fool.
Take advantage of the opportunity to learn when it is given to you.
I mentioned yesterday that it was nice that I was asked if I wanted his input. I would have been foolish to say no.
As you go about your day consider the opportunities and moments you have to get better and step into them.
I’m cheering for you.
