The Illusion of Certainty

August 1, 2011 — by Daryll Scott0

Certain people like to be certain about certain things that they certainly can’t be certain about.

One of the things that changed my life completely was learning to say, “I don’t know.” I would invite you to experiment with it… Simply relaxing and taking the time to think “I don’t know” has extraordinary consequences.

“I don’t know.” leads you to keep thinking

“I don’t know.” prevents you from ‘pretending’ that you do

“I don’t know.” cannot be argued with

“I don’t know.” may provoke a better question

“I don’t know.” provokes curiosity

“I don’t know.” opens minds

“I don’t know.” is the path to wisdom

“I don’t know.” calls for finding out more

It is worth noting that “I don’t know” does not stop you from acting. You will often never really know for sure, it’s about knowing enough to proceed confidently but without the illusion certainty.
