I never fail to learn something every day. Some lessons are not very profound. Some are.
For example, I learned – from reading Cesar Millan’s new book – that ignoring Flash during one of his barking sessions really does shorten it. My commenting to him or even trying to get him to shut up only made the situation worse.
I learned that the new technique I’m using to write the new book is working fantastic – that surprises me, since it’s totally different from anything I tried before.
I learned that Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style really is a genius small book.
I learned that my discomfort with my new computer is just a form of ignorance – and that the more I use it, the more I know and the more comfortable I am.
That was just this week. Can you imagine what I’ll learn next week?
How about you? Any lessons you’d like to share?
