FOOD 4 THOUGHT


 

It is important to take a step back and reflect once in a while.  Enjoy this quote and see if you can find a way to relate it to your life.

 

 

“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.” -Chinese Proverb

 

 

The best way to understand something is to get knee-deep in it.  Any time that you want to learn something either quickly and/or thoroughly, immerse yourself in it as much as you can for best results.  If you want to learn a new language, for example, visiting the homeland of that language and speaking with the locals will develop your language skills better and faster than any book ever will.  Similarly, if you involve people in your life and interests, rather than just telling them about it, they’ll be able to understand you better.  Regardless of the task at hand, the most effective way to understand something is to get involved in it.
