“When nothing is certain anything is possible”
When asking important questions, one of the best answers we can get is…
”I don’t know”
Why is this so powerful?
It’s like opening a door to a new pathway.
Now of course we don’t want to hear this answer to certain simple questions.
We don’t want the local to tell us “I don’t know” when we’re lost and asking for directions. We don’t want our financial advisor to say “I don’t know” when we ask him if our investments are doing well. We don’t want our physical therapist to say “I don’t know” when you ask him why breathing is important.
There’s definitely a time and a place for the “I know” answer.
But maybe for some questions we should look for the “I don’t know” answer.
