A friend pointed out my propensity to assume that others know better than I.
I do it all the time. Do I like that artwork on the logo’d item I am ordering? Well….surely the person creating it knows what’s best. But do they? They don’t care about it as much as I do. But does it matter?
On one hand, it is dangerous to constantly refer to others. On the other hand, it is comforting to stay in our lane. If all you have to be really good at is this one specific area, it frees us from a feeling that we must ‘know it all’ and be perfect at all the things.
