Fools and fanatics are always so sure of themselves…

…while the wiser ones are so full of doubts.

The louder they talk the less I hear.  If you are pounding the table with certainty I doubt you even more.  It’s the guy over there in the corner, quietly taking it all in, that’s who I want to hear.

Just one problem.

He’s keeping his mouth shut, he knows he doesn’t know.  And therein lies his strength.

It’s like the old saw when asked about the direction of something unpredictable like the stock market or interest rates or what have you:

“Those that know ain’t saying, and those that are saying don’t know.”

The great thing about this is that you don’t need to know to make it work, you just need to do.

So go fire it up, regardless of what you know.  It will work, just not how you think it will.
