I don’t know

The cost of saying “I don’t know” is hardly anything. The benefit is 2 fold:

  1. You make others around you feel comfortable with the fact that not knowing is normal
  2. You have an opportunity to learn something new

We all say- ‘we want to learn’ but the truth is that very few of us have the willingness to pay the price. And part of the price is to acknowledge that we don’t know. That we are failing, that we have no idea about solving the problem that is bothering us. Acknowledging that we don’t know is solving half the problem.
