Polymathic Aspirations, Not Endstate
Thanks for writing this! I'm tying on my white belt.
Such a fun read. I love this one!
I like it!
"White belt mindset" is definitely something we explicitly talk about in BJJ, or at least those of us who remain humble enough to admit that we don't know everything. I am 100% confident that I've forgotten a great deal more jiu jitsu than I know, and I also recognize that new stuff is being developed every day. There is always so much to learn.
This line is a reminder of a key step in our trifecta of Learning, Unlearning, and Relearning.
Great piece! Reminds me a lot a of the experience of getting a PhD. The more you know, the less it feels like you know since the universe of knowledge expands faster than you can ever process it. The joy of the journey of learning!
