There are things you know, things you don’t know, and things you don’t know you don’t know.
Think about your practice. You know how to draft a document or pleading, you know how to introduce yourself to a fellow professional and tell them what you do, you know how to talk to clients about referrals.
And if you don’t know these things, you know you should. Not knowing presents you with the opportunity to learn and grow.
“Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” – Sara Blakely
The things you don’t know you’re missing may present your greatest opportunity for growth. That’s why it’s important to continually learn, to study what others have said and done. One idea, one better method, could change everything.
But there’s another benefit to not knowing what you don’t know, although you might not always see it that way.
Not knowing about all of the risks and potential problems that might occur when you take action might be the very thing that allows you to take that action. If you knew everything that could go wrong, you might stop in your tracks.
Is ignorance bliss? Sometimes. Probably more than we know.
