The less you think you know, the better
I was recently at an event where the speaker shared a quote from Greek Stoic philosopher Epictetus that simply said:
“It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows”
It’s not unlike ideas I’ve shared before about being willing to change your mind, but I really like the way this was phrased.
In reading the book “ The Half-Life of Facts “, a few more similar quotes jumped out at me. The first goes directly into the idea of being willing to change your mind.
