I don’t know

If you wish to improve, be content to appear clueless or stupid in extraneous matters – don’t wish to seem knowledgeable. And if some regard you as important, distrust yourself.”

– Epictetus, Enchiridion, 132

One of the most powerful things you can do as an innovator (and human being) in our hyperconnected, 24/7 media world is say: “I don’t know.”

Don’t get caught up in the enormous “waterhose of information”: emails, instagram, slack, facebook, zoom, teams, skype, reuters, twitter, linkedin, what’s app, telegram… it is insane to keep track. So don’t try.

The world don’t need more information, but it needs the right questions.

So stay curious, ask questions, be surprised…
