“Everyone you meet knows something you don’t know, but need to know. Learn from them.” – C. G. Jung
There are about 6,000,000 pages currently on Wikipedia.
Way back in 2018 about 20,000,000 words were being added to Wikipedia every month. You would have to read 12 hours, every day, at the dizzying pace of about 800 words a minute to stay current with the info being added daily.
Sufficeth to say, there is a ton that you and I don’t know.
But, for all we do not know, there’s at least one person out there that does. Real folks add the millions of words to Wikipedia. Thanks to social media, these regular folks are accessible; you can meet, talk to, learn from, and even collaborate with them.
Kind of obvious but, there are folks in your life that know more about some stuff than you. The opposite is also true: you know much that others don’t.
Your friends, family, co-workers, the latte boy at Starbucks, all possess some knowledge that could help you solve a problem you’re wrestling with.
Where do you begin? You start by asking questions and being genuinely interested in others. Ask for opinions, ideas, and dreams. If you are humble and listen with real interest there will be some information you don’t know that they do, you just have to ask, listen, find, and use it.
