Success Thought of the Day – 7/17/18: Realm of Possibility

In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind there are few. Shunryu Suzuki, Zen philosopher

The realm of possibility is fascinating, as it is about things that may happen or may be the case.  The inherent differences between the beginner’s mind and the expert’s mind have been readily explained.  Beginners will trust intuition and curiosity over analysis and pre-conceptions.

There should be no conflict.  You see, operating in the “mind of an expert” is less about how the mind actually works.  Unfortunately, it is more about how a person persons him or herself.  Researchers have demonstrated that the most skilled persons, in a multitude of fields, never stop learning – – and thus behave like a beginner.

Take-away item

Seek to be a life-long learner, forever growing and evolving.  Let your intuition guide you towards opportunities, allow your curiosity to be eager to learn, while your analysis improves over time with experience.
