The willingness to be an amateur allows us to try new things, experience things we normally wouldn’t experience and become more well rounded.
Too many of us (and I’m certainly in this group) don’t like to do things we aren’t good at so we just focus on our specialties. While this might allow us to become really good at certain things, without the willingness to try new things it’s easy to become stagnant.
Being willing to do new things, that we might not be good at, will allow us to grow as people and might even allow us to find the next things we are good at.
Have a great day!
