The inspiration for today’s episode came from Ego is the Enemy by Ryan Holiday, in particular the chapter on ‘BECOME A STUDENT”.
Ryan talks to the importance of sitting in the seat of a student but more importantly, how the ego can prevent us from taking this seat.
I share a recent experience I had as a student and how I too saw my ego come to the surface.
Being a student takes many forms, having a teacher is just one. Being your own teacher is also a valuable vehicle for learning. Setting time aside for self-critical reflection, asking yourself what could be done better, what competencies could be developed and what skills could be honed. Also, the art of seeking and accepting critical and harsh feedback – a powerful teacher available to us all.
Thank you for listening and please do share this episode with one other if you think it could help.
