What's 10x more powerful than learning something new?

Today we are going to talk about something far more powerful than learning a new skill. You might be wondering what that is, right?

What if there was something that gave you far more leverage than acquiring a new skill? Would you go for it?

This Greek philosopher. Socrates, said “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”. This is absolutely true.

One thing you hear in my intro is that in this podcast we want to ask the right questions. So these are the questions that make you think and it's funny, I saw this this quote today and I was like, that's on point, man. That's really what I want to do. OK.

When you're in business, entrepreneurship and stuff, things are constantly moving. Right. What was working yesterday is not necessarily working tomorrow. So you don't want to get into a situation where you're like, oh, man, I've only learned this. That's all I can do.

You want to be in a situation where you do understand what you're doing today, but if something changes, you have the ability and all the resources necessary in your brain to adapt. And for that, you need to think.

More than telling people, OK. Click here. Click there. Click there. You know, you can do that like operational stuff. But me, I don't like doing this stuff. You know, as I said, I always want my staff and everybody working with me to understand where we're going.

I want them to understand the concept. I also like to ask them some questions as well. When I teach people some stuff, I will give them the overall strategy. And then when I repeat, I will ask some questions. Why are we doing this? And if you understand what the problem is, that you are trying to solve, it makes things a lot easier. OK.

And for me, it's the same thing. So there's this quote. “Give someone a fish and they will eat for a day…teach them how to fish and they will eat for a lifetime”.

So I don't want to be in a situation where I'm just teaching something to someone in the sense that they will only know that thing that I just told them. I want people to be able to adapt to any situation they will encounter because we've discussed this before. This is what's going to make a big difference for you as an entrepreneur.

Your ability to adapt to changes, because you know what? Everything is going to change. It's always moving. Everything moves all the freaking time, which is good, right? Because otherwise, we will just run out of products and run out of methods or something like that. You know, the world will be static. It will be uninteresting. So me, I strive for this. I really want everybody in my team to be able to do that. Right.

So, you know, sometimes I have people asking me, oh, man, you know what? How does that work? So instead of me going and showing them, I'm like, OK, so let's look at this situation. I will ask them questions that will not necessarily answer their question straight away, because, you know, they don't see the process that was behind that.

If you understand all the questions that led me to that particular point, you understand why I did it, why it makes sense and how it could be done differently to achieve the same result.

And you can actually create your own stuff. And this is what I always want to do with my staff when I give them something. I want them to think about it. And I want them to give me suggestions. All right. Because you know what? Another brain seems to get stuff from a different angle.

It can actually make it a lot better. So this is the same thing for you, OK? When you're looking for a mentor or something and if you have a good mentor, that mentor is actually going to ask you a lot of questions. People think it's frustrating. You know, it's like, oh, man, I don't get any answers.

I'm only getting questions. What kind of mentorship is this and stuff? This is precisely what mentorship is. If you guided to be able to answer this question by yourself, by seeing which angle you should approach that from, then. This is invaluable, right.
