Because they are fresh, they don’t act like gurus and they absorb their surroundings with a beginner state of mind. They realize that to move forward they’re going to make mistakes, so they might as well hurry up and make them.
The gurus are the one’s who won’t take a step backwards; they are done with making mistakes and enjoy the comfort of thinking they know, but that is a mistake. Teachers are especially susceptible to this, and must realize it.
Noobs learn more, more than the master who know’s everything. Strive to be a more experienced noob because masters don’t exist.

Congratulations on being a noob @Slaven. Funny how that happened.
Have you ever found yourself graduating to guru status?
