Sure, you may not know what you don’t know.
You may even think you can’t discover what you don’t know that you don’t know.
But that’s bunk.
9 Ways to Discover What You Don't Know that You Don't Know
Try these nine ways to discover the blind spots in your knowledge:
- Have diverse people around you with lots of interests that don't match yours.
- Listen to what other people are talking about and saying about new things.
- Ask great questions of others.
- Take every opportunity you can to observe your situation from new perspectives.
- Know who you can count on to challenge your thinking.
- Surround yourself with people who will talk to you honestly, even when that's difficult.
- Let others share what they know that you don't know as anonymously or as visibly as they would like.
- Always keep the knowledge that you don't know everything you need to know front and center in your mind.
- If you don't find out at least one new thing you didn't know that you didn't know daily, you aren't trying hard enough . . . so try harder!
