I Don’t Know

Written 1 year ago.

In this blog post, Dan Shipper discusses what he learnt after meeting Jason Fried, founder of 37signals. While, interesting, what really caught my eye was his conclusion about smart people: they 1) ask what you’re hoping to accomplish before saying anything, 2) they give advice with several caveats and 3) say “I don’t know” frequently. I need to get into the habit of saying “I don’t know” more often.
