“What is that?” “How does that work?” “Why is that important?”
All important questions that we tend not to ask.
Given the way we all grew up, it’s not unusual that we don’t ask. We think we are judged by how much we know. But we step into knee-deep trouble when we think need to know so much. We don’t ask questions when it would help us, we put on airs that we know things, we compete to be the one with the right, best answer. How can any of this be helpful when what wins today is connection, consensus, and collaboration?
Go ahead and ask.
In your corner,
PS: If they judge you harshly because you didn’t know something, it probably says more about them, ya?
