There are those with many more years of experience than I have who seemingly know much less than me. Then there are those with fewer years who seem to be running circles around me. Why? This used to baffle me until I realized it is not how many things or events you have been through, it is what you gain from those experiences. Just because you have 20 years of making the same mistake doesn’t make you any better than someone who learns not to do that on day one. We can choose what we learn from our experiences if we are willing to admit we have something to learn.
