There’s nothing wrong with not knowing, unless we’re satisfied with not knowing. Not knowing is at its best when it serves as a catalyst for our finding out. It’s at its worst when it serves as the final buzzer on our desire to know.
We have a choice each time we are confronted with not knowing.
We can decide we want to know more about a topic/skill/issue/concept
We can decide we don’t care enough about the topic/skill/issue/concept to seek germane knowledge.
I have repeatedly chosen not knowing over knowing when it comes to working on automobiles.
I have repeatedly chosen knowing over not knowing when it comes to trying to understand how the learning process works.
We all make those important choices. Our time and energy are finite.
What is alarming to me is when folks I know choose not knowing almost all the time.
Learning new stuff is invigorating and empowering. Let's roll!
