Seth's Blog: Getting Vs. Taking
On Seth Godin's blog, a short, yet insightful, post was made. Seth discusses the difference between getting and taking. For example, in class, you may get information but you don't "take" it. By "take", Seth means that a student does not usually request to know more than asked, they are content in being spoon-fed their education. Seth comments that the best students push their teachers and therefore "take" as much as they can from their education. This post made me wonder if I, myself, am taking as much as possible from a course, or am I just accepting whatever information I can understand. I hope to not be the latter, and always strive to learn more, whether I'm in my design class, or my calculus class.
