This Will Durant quote feels like the theme of my life.
I often wonder…
- How much smarter I would have been had I owned my ignorance instead of trying to appear smarter than I was?
- How many more extraordinary relationships I would have had if I had been quick to learn from others instead of quick to dismiss them?
- How much more quickly I would have found solutions to my problems had I recognized my tendency to overestimate my expertise?
- How much kinder would I have been in my thoughts and words toward people with whom I didn’t agree or like?
