On becoming an expert beginner

Collins used climbing again to explain one thing, i.e. the world is evolving and things have changed that most people who thought they have mastered what they have been doing do not often see changes. Although Collins has been a climber for 25 years he explained how challenging routes differed in today's sport and he had to learn freshly from a coach in order to grow as a better climber. This is the sort of mistakes being made by a lot of veteran Managers. Their reaction to problems is normally by answers already in their head instead of a clear mind led by smart questions. Collins believes that any creative or entrepreneurial endeavor requires the precision of a scientist and the wonder of a child. Collins also uses a story on Sam Walton of Wal-Mart to demonstrate the importance of life time learning and humility.
