“Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.” Zen ProverbI like this proverb since it reminds me that the learning procedure before and after acquiring skills or knowledge is the same. That is, you have to do all the time to the job. Learning is a journey and not a destination. Yes there are many destinations across the way but if you stay at any location too long, you are no longer on a trip and you’ve temporary arrived. The world isn’t focused on your destination and keeps moving along its own journey. The longer you remain at your destination, the longer you’ll assume that you’ve arrived someplace you don’t have to place in the job. You will know or have the ability to do something different but staying long assures your expansion will deteriorate and will not keep you in learning manner.
