Progress

To understand anything new one must actively seek to learn from differing perspectives and assimilate new learnings into ones overall worldview.

This is not easy for most of us because it feels so good to be validated for older less nuanced ways of thinking.

Most stick with the feeling of being right and the validation it brings them from their crowd.

It’s much easier to shout others down and high five those around us than to do the difficult work of seeing the world closer and closer to the reality that actually exists, although this is the only way to understand people and the beginning of solving real world problems.

Absent the work there is no learning, no progress, and no path forward only a buttressing of our ego.
