How much learning is enough?
Thanks to Jay leaving a comment on my post about our first bus-ride:
“As to missing things, well, we are beyond that stage. We will all be missing things all the time. The objective is not to learn everything; it’s to learn enough.”
I presume he is not suggesting that we should stop asking for more if we feel it would support our efforts, bring us closer to our goal or further in our undertaking.
So the question is how much is ‘enough’ learnt? My ideas on this for further discussion:
- It is enough, when we are on track to reach our goals
- It is enough, when we have reached our goals
- It is enough, when we had a conversation that leads us ahead, i.e. to find new paths worth following
- It is enough, when we have been able to contribute something and/or to get something out of it (i.e. Jay’s suggestion to always have a safety net available)
Thanks for your input to this interesting topic.
P.S.: Yes, I have learnt enough on our first bus-ride. Thanks.
