Learning what's not taught

How much are you learning from your teachers?  How much are you learning aside from that?

Teachers teach us.  That's the whole idea of being a teacher, right?  But teachers, no matter how good, will have their limitations, things they can't teach.

Sometimes it's hard to figure out what you're not being taught, but even harder to be proactive and learn it on your own or with someone else.

In my opinion, a really good teacher does not want you to be a clone or a copy of them.  Those who do seem insecure or have a dangerous ego.  The good teachers want to teach you, but will want you to grow in ways they might not be able to teach.

But in order to do that, you have to look at what they're not able to help you with and then figure out where to go from there.  Honor your teachers by growing, not by copying!
