This is a chapter title of the book, “Influencer” by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, David Maxfield, Ron McMillan, and Al Switzler. So far, I love the book and how it focuses so much on behavior. The quote at this chapter is what I really wanted to share, which is:
There are three kinds of men, ones that learn by reading, a few who learn by observation, and the rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.
I just love this. Its so true in how so many people learn in life. Whether it is business, financing, relationships or even parenting, most people learn by trial without truly observing and learning from others or learning from expert sources like books.
