How does Seth Godin’s ‘A professional stumbler’ apply to your Project Management learning?

A professional stumbler

Leo’s working hard to do something he’s never done before. He’s just turned one, and he doesn’t know how to walk (yet).

There are no really useful books or videos on how to walk. It’s something he has to figure out on his own. But instead of waiting on the couch until the day he’s ready to proudly strut across the room, he’s there, on the floor, every day, trying it out.

He’s already discovered a hundred ways that don’t work, and stumbled countless times.

But he persists.

I don’t know about you, but this is precisely the way I learned how to walk as well.

In fact, it’s the way I learned how to do just about everything important. By doing it.
