One of my buddies
is very, VERY intelligent,
book learning smart.

Unfortunately, this is more of a hindrance
than it is a help.

She doesn’t ask questions
because she feels
she should know the answers.
Folks don’t volunteer answers
because they’re intimidated by her brains.

That’s tough
because it is impossible
to know everything,
especially the practical knowledge
you can obtain only from doing.

The book learning knowledge
she prides herself on having,
of course,
is often a Google search away.

As Patrick Lencioni,
author of
The Advantage

“In this world of ubiquitous information
and nanosecond technology exchange,
it’s harder than it has ever been in history
to maintain a competitive advantage
based on intelligence or knowledge…”

Knowing the answers
is no longer as important as
asking the questions.
