The more I know, the more I realise how little I know

Horizons: there’s a lot to explore

When I started my MBA in 2014, I had a naïve idea that when the course ended I’d be ‘complete’. I’d graduate with a knowledge of business and enough career experience to make me the ‘finished article’ – ready for anything the business world could throw at me.

Actually, the more experience I gain, the more I realise how little I know and how much more there is to learn.

Now, hardly a day goes by without me talking to someone who gives me a new perspective or insight I hadn’t considered before. They could be a professional with 30+ years of experience, or a student fresh out of school, experts with reams of qualifications and people who’ve learnt their craft on the job. There’s always something to take away from the conversation that I didn’t know or that makes me think differently. So perhaps one of the best lessons I’ve learnt is humility and the value of openness.

And maybe that’s what being ready really means.
