The Strangest Places
Because you can find lessons anywhere.
To get outside my comfort zone, I once took a swing dancing class.
I grew increasingly frustrated because I wasn’t the best dancer — nowhere near it — and apparently my frustration was evident. My teacher came over to me and asked what was up.
After telling him I was just annoyed because I didn’t like to be bad at anything, he told me,
“Dancing isn’t about good or bad. Like life, it’s about cadence. It follows a sequence and asks you to keep up in the best way you possibly can. It doesn’t ask you to be the best.”
Nobody can be the best at life. There are too many factors. Try to be better today than you were yesterday. That will help you follow life’s unpredictable cadence to the best of your ability.
Lessons can be learned anywhere. So long as you give yourself the freedom to learn.
