DISCLAIMER: This is not one of my official articles/videos/blogs. It is just an interesting video that I discovered to guide me on my track to filitering through sources to find the most valid and interesting ones.

The ability to admit to ourselves that we don't have to be the one who can solve all problems is a wonderful gift. It allows us to be more open in our learning. At least that is how I see it.
