You have a gift. You’re trying to voice something. You know how to do something valuable.
Don’t tell your gift. Show it.
Don’t wait until you’re an expert. Teach what you want to learn.
- Because you’ll truly learn it by teaching it. If you share your experience and process, then you’ll integrate and embody your teaching fully.
- Because it was probably painful for you to learn, and now you know how to work through the pain. You have a map of the road you took. Share it with other travelers so they can find their own way.
I first learned the value of teaching in college. I excelled as a student because I started study groups where we’d co-teach. Each student would take a small bit of the material, study it in depth and then we’d co-teach one another. I found that I’d learn more about what others taught, but I would truly understand, comprehend and embody whatever I taught the group.
You don’t have to learn something new to start teaching.
You already have a gift to share.
Teach it today. Teach every day.
My teaching today is sharing what I know about teaching. What’s yours?
