I can remember vividly a regular question when I got home from school. “What did you learn today”? was the oft quoted phrase from my mother. Thankfully, she believed I had learned something although I’m not sure I took advantage of the opportunity. As a leader who works in education, I see the lessons that students have the ability to learn everyday, from academic curriculum to social interactions. As growth occurs, they will find themselves looking back and seeing the opportunities they chose to learn from or maybe ones they decided to wait on.
Asking the “what have you learned” question is not one that should be limited to school-age children. Everyday we learn lessons. Everyday we learn from mistakes and victories. Everyday we learn about people and we learn about ourselves. The question becomes, are we willing to actually learn?
