Sho-shin: rediscover beginner’s mind

Given that most self improvement stuff is pompous bollocks, here’s some that isn’t (link at the bottom)

It’s mainly really readable and about as cliché-free as this stuff gets, apart from the bloody bamboo photo.
I would add, because my ego wants me to, that if you are really good at your job (which you are, obviously) then you need this all the more.

If you have the choice of attending a meeting and either:

  •  knowing stuff that would be useful, or
  • not knowing stuff that would be useful

 to the people at the meeting, I would go with the not-knowing one.

On the other hand, if you actually are a beginner, you need to work hard to get out of beginners mind as soon as you can, otherwise you’ll be really good at not actually doing anything.
