What "AHA" moment would you share?

My son struggled while working an algebra problem tonight and finally said he felt "Stupid" for not seeing the solution immediately. I told him to remember, that it took a GENIUS to discover "0". I'm sure there are many moments of insight that occur in FIRST. Anyone care to share something they found especially useful while working on the FIRST competition? Something that might help us all?
(I'm still learning but if you knew me you wouldn't find that hard to believe!)

Just curious

Steve

Re: What "AHA" moment would you share?

My aha moment was when I realized that to be successful you have to enjoy what you are doing. This not only applies to FIRST but to all aspects of life. If your having fun work seems less like work.

Part of compromising means being able to trust that everyone else knows what they're doing, and don't need you hovering there to make sure.
