I enjoyed reading Morgan Housel’s blog post on the Collaborate Fund blog. The ideas in the post are some that I want to explore in my blog, too. All these items are direct quotations from the post:
- The ability to create complex stories makes it easy to fool people, including yourself.
- What’s boring is often important and the smartest people are the least interested in what’s boring.
- Intelligence can make it difficult to communicate with ordinary people, who may have the missing insight you’re looking for.
These are important ideas worth looking into and thinking about. An idea from another outside source—the Make Me Smart podcast—came to mind when I read the post: “None of us is as smart as all of us.” (I just learned that the Internet attributes that quote to Kenneth H. Blanchard.)
