Couldn't agree with you more Andy.  I do ETL nigh on every day of the week but that does not mean that I know everything.  

I have seen tools used in ways I never thought about so I always keep an open mind.

I never impose my methodology on people from the start and always listen to ideas.  We may still go with my solution, we may not but the solution we go with will be the right one for the problem.

I have loads of experience and that helps me not get stuck quite so often as someone who is less experienced.

Good post.

Reminds me of something I say to lots of people, that ignorance is not the same thing as stupidity.  Don't be afraid to be "exposed" as ignorant.

You can fix ignorance very easily - leave your mind open to the "possibility" you don't know everything, and keep learning.  (I left that in quotes because it's not really a possibility, is it?  It's a certainty.)  Unfortunately, stupidity can't be fixed.
