Are You Willing to Be the Dumbest Person in the Room?
Sometimes the secret to success is being willing to be the dumbest person in the room. It seems counterintuitive, but it is true. When you're willing to risk being cool and appearing like an expert, you are open to ask the questions that REALLY need to be asked. See how being successful sometimes means being dumb in this excellent post.
I n my career, I’ve noticed that the most successful work emerges from a crystal-clear answer to the question, Why are we doing this? That sense of purpose sometimes arises organically, but in my experience, it is more often the result of someone bothering to ask that exact question.
