I’ve been prone to thinking sharing online is a game of musical chairs where everyone is scrambling claim the next new insight.
But the truth is this isn’t a zero sum game. It’s an ecosystem of learning and teaching.
If I look around, rather than ahead, there are so many opportunities for me to teach what I’ve learned. There are people to serve, those that would benefit from what I know. More than that, how I learn and teach is unique to me. I’m sure there are those that want to hear it from me and no one else.
In this setting, it’s not a game of musical chairs, but a university. There’s lecture halls with seats to the back, and anyone who wants to learn is invited. I just need the courage to stand up and teach.
