Daily Attitude Email 06 26 19

Now that I’m getting a little older, it’s harder and harder to ignore all the times that I’m wrong.

It’s been a bit of a wake up call, but hopefully I’ll finally learn something.

I recently received an email with these questions:

4 questions he recommends to test our intellectual humility:

– Do I tend to think more like a soldier or a scout? (A soldier’s job is to defend; a scout’s is to explore and discover.)

– Would I rather be right, or would I rather understand?

– Do I solicit and seek out opposing views?

– Do I enjoy the ‘pleasant surprise’ of discovering I’m wrong?

The Book of Beautiful Questions by Warren Berger

I especially liked the last one.

What a pleasant surprise how wrong I was?!?

Man, I wish I was that mature.

I bet Meaghan wishes I was that mature too. And my kids. And my business partners. And my friends. And my family.

Kind of seems like a lot of people might benefit from a little more humility on my part.

I’d better get to work.

Make it a great day.

Jake
