We cannot master something we have not studied. Seems obvious–however, there are people who believe they are experts when in fact they are just beginners. Do not get me wrong: I love being a beginner and I love beginners. I am speaking about beginners who believe they are knowledgeable. We need to know where we are and move from there. We then need to learn and own what we want to master. We arrive at mastery after a long arduous road, and still the journey is not over. We still need to transcend what we have mastered in order to complete our course of study.
What has happened to apprenticeship? Since we are all “equal” and “experts” already, we will not recognize that we need a master to learn. How sad.
