This is an incredibly important concept. No matter what I do in life, I never really stop learning. My perceptions adapt constantly as I grow, mature, and gain more experiences--even in the span of a year, I feel like I've changed (and I cringe when I think of myself in middle school). Some concepts that seemed rock solid in elementary school don't actually work well in life, so I modify them. I don't think there's anything that should be completely and utterly thrown away--if anything, take it as a sign to do something new or different.
I agree with the idea that more support causes teams to perform better. In band, it’s helpful to have more people in the audience (at least, when they’re showing some common courtesy and respect and not talking during the song, but that’s another issue entirely), because it feels like people are actually interested in our performance. It’s also easier to put on a play when the audience is clearly involved, and the best Hi-Q games are the home ones, where we know that the audience is supporting us. I suppose the same concept applies to sports, although since spectators tend to be louder and closer to the players than anything I’ve participated in, it might also feel more distracting--I suppose that part depends on the player.
My thoughts concerning books, school, and everything else.
