Know Your Ignorance
Not sure why, but in our society today, people typically try to make it appear they have an answer for something, even when they’re completely ignorant on the subject. I believe it’s because they have fallen prey to the false meme that successful people have all the answers. But nothing could be further from the truth…
Intelligent people know they have blind spots and confirmation bias. And they have a much better understanding of what they don’t know. They know that to make the best decisions, they should never approach the situation as though they alone possess the best answers. They understand that to admit ignorance of a subject is never ignorant; it’s smart and the mark of an intelligent, rational, and wise person.
Don’t seek to be “right.” Seek to learn more, so you can take the better action. The action that takes you closer to becoming the best version of yourself.
In just about any area, here is a fundamental truth: You can’t look good and get better at the same time.
So how you doing on that?
