I get nuggets of wisdom from a variety of sources and sometimes there is that particular nugget that resounds within that triggers a feeling of guilt, “oh shit that’s me!“.
Well today’s nugget, as many of them do, came from the “PowerfulJRE” podcast #899 -Bryan Callen. I’m guilty at times of trying to win a conversation, emotion overrides logic and instead of entertaining ideas I start loading my shotgun full of ammunition so that I can fire back in defence with all that my intellect and ego can muster wasting the opportunity to become further enlightened. This is something that I feel I have gotten better at of over the years but understand that there is more much room for improvement.
So today’s post short and sweet and as Joe Rogan put it “stop trying to win the conversation because it’s a horrible impediment to learning anything“. *mic drop*
