I love this challenge put forth by some of my heroes at Good Food Jobs this month- it’s in the spirit of reminding ourselves that Education is more than a checklist of achievements, that it can be about stoking the fires of our curiosity and stimulating our minds for the duration.

Every time someone uses a word that you don’t know, a term that you don’t understand, or references something that you don’t know about, ask them to explain it. All too often we nod our heads in agreement and continue the conversation, for fear that people will know that we’re not up to speed. But sometimes simply the act of asking creates a more fertile environment for everyone to learn.
