Great quote from Seth Godin

It’s so tempting to start drawing maps for people. It makes them happy and it makes me feel smart. But resisting that temptation is the right thing to do, because once someone does it on their own a few times, they become unstoppable. Watching that change occur is one of the highlights of my professional life. And in fact, every great teacher I’ve ever known seeks the same outcome.

I’ve been fortunate to have many great teachers in my life, and I had plenty of moments with them where I just wanted them to “draw the map,” for me. They never did though. Instead they gave me just enough to get started on my own.
