Teach What You Want to Learn


My coach used to say, “Teach what you want to learn.

Sounds ridiculous – how can you teach something you haven’t learned yourself yet? Isn’t that fraudulent, or at the very least unethical?

As it turns out, there’s a lot of wisdom to it.

Because when you’re truly interested in learning something, you put in a lot of time and effort in researching it, experimenting with it, explaining it, interviewing experts about it, creating tools to make it easier to understand, and applying it…

And then becoming an expert in the process.

This year, I will be hosting a summit on a topic I’ve always wanted to learn more about. I will reveal it later, but just know that it’s totally okay to teach something you don’t have a lot of expertise on. The mere fact that you’re interested in it will allow you to master it faster.
