Compensation of Learning

There are always lessons to be learned from nearly any action that we take. From our actions there are positive and negative consequences that result. There is a great deal to learn from the consequences of our actions, especially the first few times we try something. To gain mastery, there are many consequences to learn from. We discover by being open to learning what we are doing well and what we need to improve.

Some people try maybe just once or twice to swing a golf club to hit a small ball toward a hole marked by a flag quite a long distance away. Others stay with golf to learn from their actions toward a higher level of mastery. We aim to stick with some things to continue learning, but not others. What guides your decision to learn from your actions, or not?

Be conscientious with the decisions you make to continue learning. Keep an open mind. It is acceptable to continue learning from what you have yet discovered how to do perfectly. Golf courses, classrooms, professional networks, businesses and homes should be full of such learners.

For yourself, remain patiently open to continue learning from your actions.

“If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.” — Henry David Thoreau —
