Don't Overlearn

Sometimes in life there's one way that seems like the "right" way to do something but you choose to do it the "slightly wrong" way.

And the slightly wrong way works.

The slightly wrong way might actually be the right way to do it in certain cases, but it can be important to approach it discerningly and not overlearn that lesson, applying it elsewhere.


Maybe you're on a project and your team isn't working well. So, you decide to just do it all yourself. As a result the project goes well and you get a good grade. You come out of that experience learning that working with others isn't productive and it's better to work for yourself.

Don't overlearn that, though! It only happened to work in that case.
