Intellectual Humility – Your Fuel for Lifelong Learning

Humility

 

The current pandemic has shined the spotlight on the importance of lifelong learning – which enables us to continuously refresh and expand our knowledge and master new environments. A recent BBC article added valuable insights on the topic. Here is my favorite excerpt:

"Abundant research has shown that intellectual humility – the capacity to recognize the limits of our knowledge – can powerfully improve our thinking and decision making. And that capacity to reconsider our preconceptions and open our minds to new ways of thinking is increasingly important in today’s rapidly changing world. Whether we are learning for pleasure or attempting to boost our professional skills, we could all do well to cultivate that “beginners’ mindset”, where nothing is certain, and there is everything to learn."
