"The supreme art of the teacher is to awaken joy." said Albert Einstein
If you are working on your continued growth and learning in isolation keep your powerful curiousity and joy of learning alive. Remind yourself that you are a project in progress going in directions of your own choosing. Your purpose is to unravel the mystery of living well on the over-crowded Spaceship Earth.
The greatest teachers are perennial students themselves. "Every professional was first an amateur," said Ralph Waldo Emerson. Thinking of yourself as always a student facilitates an openness to new information and ideas.
