Today, whenever we want to know about something, all we do is take our device (mobile, desktop, laptop..) and open google. We enter our search term and voila! we obtain the information we seek from so many sources!
All this happens in a matter of seconds! We learn from unknown individuals who have shared their knowledge for the world to learn!
So, how did the internet come to being? In the 1950, when the electronic computers started getting into the picture, individuals started creating more and more information on their system. But, they could not share the knowledge! Then they started connecting the systems – one computer at a time to create a network of computers that could freely exchange information. Houses, districts, cities, countries and finally continents – today you have the complete world connected!
In today’s knowledge based economy, information is the currency – by helping others learn, we learn along with them as well. From the simplest of words to mathematics and general knowledge, by sharing we all learn more!
Every one of us has the ability to teach. Each one of us has the ability to make an individual understand the concepts and information that we know.
Each one of us is a teacher as well as student all through our lives.
Everyday, we learn something new. Sometimes it is on relationships, sometimes on manners, sometimes on communication, sometimes about the world, sometimes about technology and so on. The moment you start teaching or explaining the concepts to someone else, you will see that you are getting much stronger in that concept and you acquire a deeper level of knowledge.
It is said that – “If you can simplify the concept so that your 90 years old grandma can understand it, then you have truly mastered it!”
So, don’t be afraid – teach the world what best you know and receive with open arms, all that the world has to teach you!
