If you’re reading this, you’re probably an expert.
And because you’re an expert, it’s reasonable to assume you talk about your craft like one.
I know I do. I often make arguments and take stances around my areas of expertise. It’s how we share ideas so they can be considered and scrutinized by others.
More recently, though, I’ve noticed I’ve been relating more to the explorers out there. The ones who share what they discover instead of having all the answers.
They’re also experts, but they’re still actively exploring their craft. There’s a subtle difference in the way they communicate.
Maybe you can be an expert while still taking an explorer’s mindset. Maybe that’s the better way to communicate.
I’m not sure.
