Here's what I thought could be a good Bumper Sticker for today: Approach life as a student, not as an expert.
That if we approach life with the innocence, exuberance and curiosity of a student, no matter what the situation, we'll be better off.
Can we ever be "expert" at anything. Well, sure. But it's all relative, right? A yoga teacher who has practicied for decades would likely consider himself a student of yoga. I consider myself a student of the psyche, and I've been studying and working in the field of psychology for over 2 decades. I know many doctors that consider themselves students of the medical arts, despite having practiced for eons.
What's the point of seeing ourselves as students? It keeps us open to new ways of seeing things, open to learning new things, open to adapting the way we work. So often (especially for those humans disposed towards perfectionism....) being "an expert" becomes rigid, it becomes pressurized where we feel we "have to know everything" and "can't risk not being perfect" and all that mess...
Students get to have the flexibility to try things, to ask questions, to collect information. It's SO much more fun and more effective.
Right now I'm going to be a student of the sleeping type! Because being a student all day is both a fun and tiring project :)
