159: The thing about teaching your craft

You may have heard the quote, “Those who can’t do, teach.”

This is only half a quote.

  • Those who teach, learn more. If you’re learning while knowing you must teach it to others tomorrow, you’ll be sure to learn deeply and thoroughly.
  • Those who teach, learn faster. Students ask questions and teachers answer them. More perspectives means more ground covered.
  • Those who teach, learn twice. Once when you learn it and once when you deliver it.

The quote should really go like this: “Those who Can’t do, teach, so that they Can.”
