This morning I received my daily dose of wisdom from the brilliant Seth Godin blog. Some days it’s one line and doesn’t make sense, other days, like today, it’s pure genius in less than 10 lines. If you aren’t a subscriber, sort it out and subscribe today!
As a provider of learning tools to the recruitment industry, I found today’s post to be particularly apt, hence why I am sharing it in all it’s (short) beauty this morning!
Now that information is ubiquitous, the obligation changes. It’s no longer okay to not know.
If you don’t know what a word means, look it up.
If you’re meeting with someone, check them out in advance.
If it sounds too good to be true, Google it before you forward it.
If you don’t know what questions to ask your doctor, find them before your appointment.
If it’s important, do your homework.
I confess that I’m amazed when I meet hard-working, smart people who are completely clueless about how their industry works, how their tools work…
It never made sense to be proud of being ignorant, but we’re in a new era now. Look it up.
