How did you do this?

Have you been asked this question? How do you usually choose to answer such a question? Is it based on technique, or wisdom? Majority of the training industry today is about convincing people that many things in life, the way to work, live and play are just about techniques that can be learnt, sorted through training and then you’re good to go, set for life. Yet that is simply not true. How we accomplish or do things involved not just techniques but also wisdom accumulated through having done different kinds of things.

What about the story you’ve been telling yourself about how you grow, about how you accomplished things? Was it because you mastered some kind of technique or gained expertise and experience?
