i’ve told Chapin (15) to make as many mistakes now (before moving away) as he can – and have the help and support from us. The caveat is that he can’t do anything hurtful, immoral, unethical, etc. For example, ask someone out who might say no, take a risk, get involved, speak up, stand out, blend in, don’t get involved, play it safe, etc, etc…everything comes with choices and consequences…some we will regret doing and many we will regret not doing – learn to overcome fear, create effective (and maybe efficient) decision making processes, etc, etc.

What teaching teaches that studying can’t

Steve Jobs quote on simplicity
Simple = To teach is to learn twice


We study. We read. We attend seminars. Etc.

All of these with the intent of becoming a better person in our spirit.

And yet, some will discover, that teaching teaches us even more than studying.

Learning more, eventually, reveals the wisdom that it matters little to walk to do the preaching, if not the walking is the preaching.
