People often say that experience is the best teacher. I cannot disagree more. If experience is truly the best teacher, then old people should be the wisest and the most mature people. In reality, however, a person’s age does not necessarily gurantee the degree of a person’s maturity. Experience does not automatically make people wise or mature. It is the lessons that people learn from experiences that make people wise and mature. Only those who pause and reflect on their experiences both good and bad will grow. Precisely speaking, learning or knowledge itself will not make people wise either. It is the knowledge that was applied to your own life that will grow you as leader. If we want to be better leaders, then we will have to take time to reflect daily on our living and learn lessons. And then, apply what we learned to our daily living. Repetition of this process will make leaders grow wise and mature.
