There’s a concept in Zen Buddhism, called “Shoshin” – beginner’s mind (no, I’m not a zen Buddhist…). This is about always having an attitude of openness and being willing to learn. We can learn from every moment, no matter how old or experienced we are.
Today, I have a new associate starting at SurePath. He already has some great experience, including working on a startup, getting his CPA designation and working in the M & A practice at KPMG. But relatively speaking, he’s at the beginning of his career path.
