Majority of the knowledge I picked up about the world, didn’t come from school. Majority of the times, it is more important to ask the right questions than to get the right answers. Majority of the CEOs, became CEOs by finding their own company and not working their way up a corporate ladder.
Most of the stories about the world we learnt in our schools, in our days growing up are wrong. And it depends on how you spend the rest of your life trying to prove it right or just learning the bigger story out there. No one has any ill intention telling you all these wrong stories you picked up. There’s just so much more than we need to learn and do before we can be conclusive about anything.
So telling ourselves stories and making theories about the world is useful, only if we learn to be able to take it up and put it down whenever we need to.
