“Teaching is really very, very important. I always tell my students that you should find an opportunity to teach. When you teach others, you teach yourself.”
— Itzhak Perlman
Think you’re not ready to teach? Good. Now is the time to start teaching. Don’t wait.
The thing is, you will always learn more by being the teacher than you will by being the student. So by all means, become a teacher.
You don’t have to claim to be the know-it-all-expert. In fact, you shouldn’t. But even if you’re a newbie, you should find a know-nothing and share what you’ve learned.
Being a teacher will push you to learn more, to be ready for questions, and to make sure you’re getting it right.
Sounds like a good way to become an expert, doesn’t it? Of course.
That’s why it’s time to start teaching.
