How do you know what you don't know?
Isn't the first step in learning something figuring out that you don't know what you need to know? We need that moment of cognitive dissonance to motivate us into learning. Or do we?
Learning occurs in so many ways that I don't even pretend to have figured it all out. But I do know this: ignorance has a way of hiding itself. There are times when we just can't figure it out on our own. We need help. We need someone else to tell us. We need feedback.We don't know what we don't know, and that creates some awkward mistakes.
Get the feedback. Ask, and then decide. There is so much more to learn.
