It’s the ability to understand what you know (as well as what you don’t) and have the fortitude to move on those insights. Whatever those “moves” might be.
Many times you’ll find you’re alone. At other times it will seem like many will take shots. While at other times it’ll seem like – everyone is taking shots.
That’s OK: as long as you understand your reasoning. i.e., The why’s that apply as to why you may be right, as well as wrong. Along with your willingness to bear both the consequences, as well as the slings and arrows if – that’s what your data or research tells you. Fortified alongside with your own viewpoints of interpretation.
It’s not easy. But those of us that make a career in this realm understand it. And I, unlike most, try to make this point understandable too you, so that you can put (what I feel) a very important tool into your own wheelhouse.
Far too often people will misjudge themselves based on the erroneous “insights” of a so-called “smart-crowd.”
You’re smarter than you think you are. Only issue most times is – you don’t, or won’t believe it.
