The White Belt

This week I read the section called “The White Belt.” The quote goes like” As a rule, each step should have a feeling of entrance. This is the beginner’s mid- the state of becoming. “I like the title of this section The White Belt. I like it because I do Tae Kwon Do and when you first start off you are a white belt. That is where everyone else starts and no matter who you are we all start off as white belts. As you take classes you learn not just from the master (which is a black belt the highest of the belts) but you also learn from everyone else as well. Taking Tae Kwon Do classes we all learn from each other no matter what belt you are. This section of the book takes everything you know and tells you that you don’t know anything. Which is true because when you are learning you don’t know everything. There are times when you are working on a code and it becomes a 30 line code and you think you did it the best way however there are some people who can take that 30 lines of code and just make it into 10 lines and some can even do it with 1 line of code. Just like the example in the book that shows the different solutions of how to write the code that generates random numbers for the United Kingdom’s National Lottery. This also goes for the blackbelts because even though you may know a lot you do not know everything. Technology changes rapidly and then there are different concepts and people that are just better at doing certain things that you. So you should not stop the search for knowledge and we should continue to try learning from each other just like how a white belt learns from each other, their pears, and their masters. Everyone has their different skills and different strengths and weakness so that means when you work as a team they can help cover your weakness and improve your strength
