Professional agitator and IMPACT Video TrainerWill Schultzdropped that little bomb on me not too long ago — and it's been bothering me.
When have I been so sure about something only to be proven wrong at work?
Oh my gosh. All. The. Freaking. Time. Here's the thing, though. I'm not bothered by the fact that I have to admit that "all the time" is the answer.
I'm actually totally fine with that.
For example, I resisted video for years, and (as many of us do)I swore up and down I would be terrible on camera. Yet I had atotalblastfilming recently. And while I'm still not a huge fan of watching myself on camera, the feedback I get from our video team is that I'm good at it. And that feels good. As it turns out, I was letting fear drive me away from something I now enjoy.
The reason why Will's question bothered me is that this pattern is not work-specific. (I do not have enough fingers or toes to count how many times I've been so fundamentally wrong about predictions and choices and people and goals in my life.)
Moreover, I do not view being wrong as a negative. Quite the opposite.
My biggest successes at work, my most captivating loves, my grandest adventures, my most rewarding lessons, my deepest cries, my most exhilarating thrills, my loudest laughs, my most treasured memories...
...almost all of them can be traced back to a moment where I had to say to myself some version of,"Wow, I was so utterly and categorically wrong about this one thing. I couldn't have been more wrong if I had tried."
I bet if you were to look back on your own life, you'd find the same thing, too.
To be wrong is to truly live. And I can't wait to be wrong again.
