Learn Something New Every Day

I was listening to a discussion on Twitter today that went something like this;

“Hey, Dude, George, brother; I met George IRL a couple years ago. He’s got some sick work. Y’all gotta check it out.”

IRL=In Real Life

I was learning about NFT’s. I am still figuring that out. My best advice is look it up, I still don’t really understand it. I do, however, know that the best place to learn something new is to be among the young. While this group would not be considered kids, they are younger than I am. This person, George, said he didn’t know NFT’s, but he just jumped in and learned from his mistakes. I appreciate the honesty. His efforts paid off, now he is considered an authority.

In another group, some one quoted Abraham Lincoln, “You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.

As I am learning the ins and outs of this technology, it would be easy to let someone else do the parts that are difficult for me. And their are plenty of offers to help, which I appreciate. But if I am going to grow, I have to make mistakes.

So, in this new year, I am going to be young again. I will jump in and learn by my mistakes. I will endeavor to create sick work. And hope to meet more people IRL. Perhaps even George.

In the mean time; if you need me, I’ll be home crocheting, cooking and visiting with friends at a window seat. The technology of my day.
