The terrible things we learn

We learn to be:

  • quiet
  • polite
  • submissive
  • indirect

And to not disturb the status quo.

We learn facts out of context.

We learn that deadlines and tests are why we need to take action.

We learn to compete regardless of the consequence of the people and environment around us.

We learn to push back our dreams in favour of showing up and doing work that doesn't tap into who we are.

We learn to manipulate and sell to each other, over collaborating.

We learn that we only have value if we are producers.

We learn our businesses are only successful if profitable, rather than measuring impact.

We learn to connect through gossip, rather than creating solutions.

We learn to ignore what is thought to be impossible.
