The Lightness of Being a Beginner

In 2005, Steve Jobs gave a commencement address at Stanford University.

I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything.

It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

How can we achieve this "beginner's mindset" without waiting for some dramatic event in our lives?
