A hard thing for self starters: Learning to learn from others.

My biggest learning in 2022: I’ve started to enjoy learning from others.

This is a big change: I’ve always been a ‘self starter’. As a kid, I learned to code by myself. I prefer reading to podcasts as it allows me to accelerate to my own speed. When I wasn’t great at certain sports, I just assumed I was not talented. This limited me to endurance sports where I didn’t need a lot of technique. At University, I skipped boring lectures and went to the library to study the subject at hand. In the end I got a great degree and in my career I am often able to innovate instead of mimic. 

In 2022 all this changed: Several friends nudged me to learn new things with the help of others.

I started to learn #boxing movements with a boxing trainer, thanks to Torsten
Mark introduced me to Jan Ebert who helps me to change my eating habits to finally lose weight over a longer period. 
Johanna and her team are helping me to improve my coaching skill set. 
Roland encouraged me to take on a new hobby…

This is a fundamental shift which has lead me to appreciate our ‘human system for knowledge exchange’. We can help each other to be better than on our own.
