Learning more when its broken

At the day job I had a few things go wrong today and I was speaking to a colleague who said “heyho, I usually learn more when it’s broke”. It’s true, but why?

Because when it’s broken, if we really want to fix it, we get look closely at how something works. We follow our noses, weigh up options, carefully consider consequences.

We get curious, basically. Focused and intensely curious.

Of course, we don’t have to wait for things to go wrong to do that.

Kindly, keep learning.
