Thought for today:

‘An expert is a fellow who is afraid to learn anything new because then he wouldn’t be an expert anymore.’

— Harry S Truman

This is not the kind of expert I would want to become.

I certainly meet experts who have built their profile on knowing things that other people don’t know.

In the age of the Internet, this can be very short-lived.

I also meet experts who take other people’s work and repackage it as new material.

This happened recently when I was on a training course – one expert using another’s expertise for their own purposes.

The definition of an expert is someone with knowledge or skill in a specific area.

It does not have to be unique in any way.

To stay expert then means gaining new knowledge or skills, to have a growth mindset.

Since Truman made this statement the world has changed considerably.

I would say an expert is now the opposite, someone who embraces new learning and experience.
