sān rénxíng bì yǒu wǒ shī yān, zé qí shàn zhě ér cóng zhī, qí bùshàn zhě ér gǎi zhī

The one who knows shame is strong.


For the modern SEO professional, this proverb emphasizes the importance of humility and continuous learning. Just as Confucius believed that there is always something to learn from those around us, successful SEO professionals recognize the value of seeking out advice, insights, and expertise from a variety of sources. By approaching every situation with a learner's mindset and actively seeking out mentorship and guidance from more experienced professionals, SEO professionals can expand their knowledge and improve their skills. The second part of the proverb, 'Choose the good and follow it, and choose the bad and change it,' also highlights the importance of self-reflection and a willingness to adapt and grow. By critically evaluating their own performance and seeking out feedback from others, SEO professionals can identify areas for improvement and make changes in order to optimize their strategy. In this way, recognizing our own limitations and committing to continuous learning can be a source of strength, empowering us to grow and improve in our work.
