I know better

Our desire for improvement can be powerful. And sometimes it can be helpful. But not always.

If we feel that we know better, then it’s not a massive logical jump to conclude that others don’t know what they’re doing.

‘Knowing better’ is mostly a status we award ourselves. ‘Doing better’ is an assessment most usefully offered by others.

Rather than arriving into a given professional scenario with an assertion of knowing better, perhaps it might be more valuable to ask if our contribution might be useful, or even needed?
