We don’t know what we don’t know

Recently I met with someone who was getting into a new field of work. His problem is that he didn’t know what he didn’t know.

It’s one thing to be wrong about things. It’s something very different to simply not know.

The challenge is to put yourself in a position to learn what you you don’t know. This might mean surrounding yourself with more experienced people, attending conferences, reading everything you can on the subjects (both online and offline) being willing to accept you need to grow.

No one knows everything about any one subject. Those who acknowledge they aren’t all knowing and are willing to constantly learn are the ones who will succeed long term. Those who think they know everything will inevitably get passed by the others

Just something to think about.

Have a great day!
