Making it up as I go along

Jack points to this definition of a knowledge worker:
A knowledge worker is someone that makes it up as they go along.

Absolutely. I remember feeling completely busted when my college roomie shared a tidbit from dinner with his uncle, my economics professor. According to Jeff, his uncle said that he could tell when grading my exam that I didn't really know the answers, but instead was reasoning them out along the way. Ouch!

Now that my technique is identified as knowledge work, I can hold my head high.

I hope you got a good grade!

Teaching kids how to think on their feet is a lot harder (and more important) than rote memorization.
