The paradox of learning

Real, lasting learning comes when you get stuff wrong, then seek to understand why you got it wrong. The obvious paradox is that by doing nothing new, or different, by staying inside the accepted practice, you get nothing wrong, and often receive  accolades as a result. However,  by working at the edge, of the process, or your own capabilities, and getting things wrong, you learn, often whilst suffering the bruises from others because you “stuffed up”.

As George Bernard Shaw said “all great things start as blasphemies”, so to learn, go out and blaspheme!
