I read the article "The Lost Art of Becoming Good at Things" by Corbett Barr onExpertEnough.com and it got me thinking about those skills we used to pass down to our children and grandchildren.
Fishing with Grandpa
Remember when kids used to "tag along" with their elders and learn something? Were you one of those kids, one of the taggers along? Perhaps in hopes that Grandpa would buy you an ice cream cone or some other treat along the way. Were you the one on the other end of the "Pull my finger" joke?
Article excerpt:People want to become experts at all kinds of things, but the truth is most people don’t actually want to put in the effort becoming an expert really requires. (Shellie "or the effort to teach another person")
