THE STUFF THAT HURTS IS THE STUFF THAT STICKS

Posted by Mike Foster: I’ve got A LOT to learn. And you probably do to.

But here's the problem:

THE STUFF THAT HURTS IS THE STUFF THAT STICKS.

It is through my pain and mistakes that I actually retain anything. I hate this but it seems to be the only place where my arrogant and self assured self can learn. All other learning methods are doubtful or short term in nature.

But pain is a different sort of teacher. It’s very hard to forget the lessons that she teaches. She is cruel and unrelenting but at least I walk away with something that made me stronger.

And whether I liked the process or not, it sticks.
