The curse of the last word
Jason Fried

Great article Jason!

I’ve also experienced something similar, but found a different solution. In addition to speaking up more often and throwing myself into the mix, I stopped caring about being correct.

When I was focused on being correct, I would end up speaking less and adding weight to what I said. When I started making more mistakes by speaking without thinking it through too much, it was more spontaneous, frequent, and a lot of times incorrect. I think it helps everyone realize I make mistakes too and we should all be checking each others work.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
