Let’s start off this fine Monday morning with a little inspiration.
One of the reasons why I love this TED Talk is because it’s so relevant to everyone. We all want to be right all the time. Last week, a colleague of mine corrected me on a word that I had used incorrectly (medium vs. media) in a presentation. My initial reaction was that of shock because I’ve been using that word for years in the wrong context but after a few seconds, I instantly appreciated the feedback. Sure my ego took a beating but at the end of the day I gained a valuable growth opportunity.
So my advice for the day is to set aside your ego and embrace being wrong. Being wrong helps us grow and widen our perspective.
