Work Hard At Knowing Less

Darin Rowell, executive leadership coach


When I was younger, I knew a lot. I was able to impress myself and others with how much I knew. 

Things were simpler back then – much more black or white and less grey.

Today, thankfully, I don’t know nearly as much. Things are less black or white, and more nuanced. 

Today, I have a lot more questions than answers. I focus more on understanding the edges and nuances of an issue before trying to solve it. In fact, I find some issues are better “addressed” than “solved”.

The crazy thing is that now that I know less, I have a greater sense of wonder, and perhaps more importantly, a much bigger impact in the world. 

What can you do to know less?
