"You Don't Know What You Are Doing"

British film director Danny Boyle has a new hit film called Slumdog Millionaire. In an interview, he said: "I have got this theory: your first film is the best film you ever make because you don't know what you are doing really. (It) is something great to work with because it's fresh."

Interesting eh? Your first film is your best because you don't know what you are doing.

I'm fascinated by this state of "not knowing what you are doing."

Is it similar to Shoshin, Beginner's Mind?

In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, in the expert's mind there are few.
