Which expert would you rather have?

Posted on: April 3, 2015

Most people consider an expert to be the person who knows the most about a particular topic or to be highly skilled in an area.

That is only a small part of being an expert.

For me, a true expert is one who has tried and failed the most, but continues to try some more with new or modified strategies (failing forward).

Sharing what I learnt from failure is what got me the presentation gig at Bett UK earlier this year. That is also how I prefaced a rehashed presentation at the sixth iteration of #educampsg yesterday.

Some might wonder if you should trust an expert who says s/he has failed the most. I would ask who you would be able to relate to. I would also argue that the expert who learns by failing forward can claim not just theoretical knowledge, but also practical application.
