LEARN FROM THOSE YOUNGER THAN YOU

This year at Catalyst Andy Stanley said that Good ideas don’t’ come from people over 45 years old (my paraphrase).  He said that older people do have positions and influence and need to champion the cause of great young minds and their ideas. 

While that is an exaggerated point, I think he wanted to get the word to an older audience that you have to be continuously learning from everything and everyone-including those younger, lower on the totem pole, and less experienced than you.

In that spirit I found this great article on mtv.com highlighting how an “iconic band” like U2 still strives to learn from younger people like Kanye West and Jay-Z including video footage.

I am not just a young guy saying this to let off steam. While I am not leadership guru, I am constantly thinking how I can learn to minister to high school students by learning from other high school students. It is humbling but no one can know better than their peers.
