"When you are a true beginner, your mind is empty and open. You're willing to learn and consider all pieces of information, like a child discovering something for the first time."

Rediscover your beginner’s mind

  • Let go of the need to always contribute. Step back every now and then and just observe and listen.
  • Let go of the need to win every argument.  Letting go of the need to prove a point opens up the possibility for you to learn something new.
  • 'Tell me more about that': Stay quiet and pour all of your energy into listening to someone else.
