3. Transferring Technology is Good; Transferring the Skill to Improve the Technology is Better.
If you are an instructor you have the responsibility to transfer the skill of improving technique to your students. If you are not, you are remiss in your duty to your students. You know that old saying, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day; teach him to fish and he will eat for a lifetime?” Well this is the same. You as a teacher must have the desire and the vision to teach your students the skills of discernment and exploration.
By discernment, I mean the ability of the student to understand what is going on and to use good judgment. And to follow along that line, exploration is defined in terms of seeking the next horizon. These two make a potent combination. Instilling these two skills means that you students can venture and learn anywhere and will know the difference between, the good and the garbage.
