Steps to a Better Me: Why We Don’t Need to Have All the Answers


Listen to this article

Someone once said to me that, today, it is taboo to be wrong; going on to say that all of a sudden there’s a need to have all the answers. It seemed to be an interesting topic, but what if we look at why it is that we don’t need to have all the answers.


1. Who really does


Life is complex and some things can be explained, while others can’t and that’s just the way it is.


Even if we tried, we can’t argue with facts. Moving along.


2. It’s just too much

Having all the answers is akin to reaching for unattainable heights.

The pressure, that is. Having all the answers is akin to reaching for unattainable heights. Further, the time and energy spent doesn’t match the returns.


A good debate is always welcomed but to save on the time and energy we just referenced, if it’s in relation to this point, please refer to number one.


3. You’ll be more likable


Can you imagine what it would feel like to share your own thoughts and opinions with someone who thinks that they have all the answers? In no time every exchange will feel like a chore.


Being able to say, “I don’t know“ conveys the message that you are humble, genuine and trustworthy. That surely has to be a good reason, right?

To be human is to be imperfect...

To be human is to be imperfect, and the best learning opportunities present themselves when we can acknowledge that we don’t know all the answers.
