I was thumbing through some old notebooks the other day (I keep all of my Moleskines) to see what I could see. I came across the following entry:
- In 124 B.C. a Greek philosopher wrote that there was, "no more knowledge to be gained".
The point is sometimes they are wrong. Just like you or I can be wrong.
When you have a project you are working on, a goal you want to accomplish, or an organization you are trying to lead who do you listen to? From whom do you seek advice? These are very important questions your could stand to ask yourself from time to time. Are you just taking what they are saying and running with it? Are you not questioning what they have to say when it is needed?
Maybe you shouldn't be listening to them as much. Because sometimes they are wrong.
