To Teach Is To Learn Twice

Are you a teacher? If you are alive, you are a teacher. It’s that simple. Every day is an opportunity to make a difference. You can teach not only others, you may also teach yourself.

Yesterday, after giving a keynote speech in the morning and then an afternoon workshop, a white-haired man approached me and said, “We teach what we most want to learn.”

His comment was motivated by my comment, “To teach is to learn twice.”

Not only did I challenge the audience to take some type of positive action, but in that challenge also was the opportunity for them to teach the anxious ones in their organization – the ones who can’t wait to hear what they learned.
