There’s a remake out of the 1980s iconic movie Karate Kid. It’s hard to imagine anyone my age who doesn’t have a mental picture of Ralph Macchio doing karate moves he learned from Pat Morita in the original.
As any Gen Xer can tell you, Mr. Miyagi’s teaching style is a little sneaky. Daniel wants to learn karate but instead he spends long, hard hours doing chores like waxing cars and painting a fence.
I recently blogged about lessons learned the hard way. This clip from the original Karate Kid illustrates the opposite — that sometimes we are absorbing knowledge without even realizing it.
Have you ever been surprised to discover you knew something you didn’t realize you’d learned?
