“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.” – – Albert Einstein
One of the things that I enjoy most about being the caretaker for Doobert is that I am constantly challenged with new things on a regular basis. Whether new ways technology can help animal rescue, or new problems that need solving, it seems like every day brings something new for me to look into or focus on.
The point of this story is that many days I feel like I am very knowledgeable in animal rescue and even to the point of being an expert particularly in the animal rescue transport side of things. Yet this use case was one that was new to me and it reminded me that for as much as I know, there is still so much to learn.
Think about your knowledge in animal rescue. Maybe you’re an expert in a particular type or breed of animal. Maybe you specialize in rescue relay transport. Maybe your organization is #1 in fostering in your local area. Whatever your experience and expertise remember that there is still so much more to learn. Think about how you can apply the lessons of Emerson and remember that inquisitive student nature you once had and can have again in rescue.
