I Don’t Know

idontknowOne fading idea is the thinking that a leader is supposed to know everything. For so long people have believed it. Some still do. Unfortunately, this mentality prohibits progress in the 21st century.

I thoroughly enjoy the fact that I don’t have to know everything. I call it the joy of not knowing. It’s so much fun. Please don’t get me wrong. I do my best to know all that I can. However, I relish a good team.

I think it’s stressful to be the only one that people approach for solutions all the time. You get easily worn out; this rarely occurs when you’re surrounded by leaders. Others have solutions too. Share the spotlight.

I’m always thrilled to say, “I don’t know” because someone in my team does know. That way I look smart without trying. Everyone is a gift to you. Avoid the superman syndrome (I-know-it-all) and enjoy the good gift of others.
