I post this as the truth I have discovered in the IT industry, and I’m pretty sure it carries over to all people over all careers. We start out in the “I know nothing” (discovery) phase, followed by the “I’m an expert” (cocky) phase, followed once again by the “I know nothing” (only scratched the surface) phase. While we all gain more expertise over time, the more important thing we gain is wisdom. We begin to realize as we get older how much more there really is to know, and how little we actually know in comparison. One of life’s lessons put very easily on a graph.
