Beware of the Self Proclaimed "Expert"
This leads me to the question of the day....is there such a thing as an "expert"? And if so, what makes an expert?
I'm not inferring that I am an expert in my field in anyway. I have never made this claim nor do I like it when others promote me as one. I can literally lie in bed at night trying to figure out what makes people change and why is it not as easy as just knowing what to do. I think I have a few ideas and have proven their success working with people, but I still have no clue. There are many theories that help to explain events and behaviour, but they are just theories...nothing more and nothing less. However, I believe, it is important to understand these theories just the same. They serve as the jumping off point and help to avoid the "blame game" (i.e. If you want to loose weight, just eat less and exercise more. - classic statement).
Those that spend their lives in pursuit of knowledge are the ones that understand the to truly "know" is to have no clue!
That's all I got.....K
