Here’s today’s quote:
Do not be afraid to ask dumb questions, they are easier to handle than dumb mistakes. – Unknown
It’s a fear almost all of us have, asking a silly question in front of a group and not getting laughed at.
We fear everyone will look down on us, we hold our tongue, and possibly mess something up later. Then we question why we don’t just speak up in the first place
Now thing of a time when someone else has asked a very basic question. Did you think they were stupid? Probably not. In fact, either you or someone else was probably wondering the same thing.
Questions are part of learning. Feel free to speak up. You can still learn without asking questions but it’s called the hard way for a reason.
