In Others Words: The Art of Learning
But I never realized Michelangelo considered himself a learner.
When you consider someone as talented … no, as gifted as Michelangelo, you assume the man knows what he’s doing, right? He must have had an innate ability to sculpt, to paint, to design … to do everything he did.
And yet, his favorite saying was: I am still learning.
And maybe those four words hold the key to all that Michelangelo accomplished — or at least hold a key to what he accomplished. I still believe he was incredibly gifted. But I also believe his posture of a learner — his inquisitiveness, his questioning — benefitted everything he did.
And it makes me wonder: Am I still learning? Or am I coasting on what I’ve already learned?
In Your Words: Do you have a favorite saying? What is it? How does it influence your life? And do you consider yourself a learner? What have you learned recently?
