Phil Jackson writes in his book about coaching the Chicago Bulls that it is
to our benefit to act or think with a "beginner's mind" rather than an
experts. To look at things freshly, with wonder; to experiment; to
experience joy in learning and doing - even when we are "experts". To do
for intrinsic reasons rather than because it is the acceptable way or the
knowledgeable way. I think this applies to the arts, to children, to life
- as well as the authors intention to relate it to a championship
basketball team. That's part of the reason that candle gets snuffed out
sometimes.
