Do you remember your rookie days—the ones before any preconceived notions put limits on your career? The key to being successful now, may be to try and think like a rookie again, says Liz Wiseman, author of Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing in the New Game of Work. Here’s how.

Ask questions. If this were our first introduction to this project/industry/software, what would you need to know?

Befriend rookies. Connect with new people in your industry and see how they approach things.
