I saw something come across my twitter stream yesterday–something along the line of “Everyone is a Teacher”. I have never thought of encounters this way. How great would it be to see all people as teachers and all encounters, even difficult ones, as a potential lesson from a teacher? It happens without us thinking about it, but somehow all these lessons fade. We begin to see the knowledge base we have as something gained by our own initiatives and capabilities, when of course, most of it comes through interactions.
Keeping that idea at the forefront I think I will try to write ONE thing I learned from one person each day. One Teacher.
The difficult part: to stay receptive to the idea that learning can come from anyone at any time.
