Perhaps there is a better way of doing things?

Also, when you do find something that works, keep in mind that new ideas are always being discovered, and the theory in most fields is changing more rapidly now than in the past, thanks to technology and the way it has connected us. Stay curious, and don't assume that you know it all - there is always more to learn.

What is the main lesson you learned from this post?
