Do you know there’s a subtle difference between ignorance and naivety? And in the last few weeks I have shared with my coaching clients about this, come to realize, not everyone pays attention to what separates the two.
My purpose here is to highlight the danger of naïveté as sometimes more costly than ignorance.
Ignorance is a lack of knowledge, so at least you know that you don’t know, and chances are that you’ll ask and receive right directions, but naivety on the other hand is when you think you know but what you know is either wrong or incomplete information.
I know this because in my life’s experience so far, as I evaluate, I’ve realized that I have paid a higher price for being naive than for being ignorant.
That feeling when you think you know but what you know isn’t what it is, and because you think you know, you don’t ask questions, or even pay attention to any extra opinions unlike the one who knows he doesn’t know.
If it was a destination challenge, the one who says I don’t know where I’m going will be helped, and arrive at the right destination, while the one who assumed the knew where they were going might end up at the wrong location.
That’s why I’ve made it part of my mission this year to highlight the danger of naivety, you will be hearing a lot from me about this via video and podcast, in the meantime let me know what you think and what naivety has cost you in the past. #joylifechangers#dontbenaive#seekknowledge#naive#upgrade#beteachable#rightknowledge#righttocounsel#learn#unlearn#relearn#arrivesafely#rightdestinations#destinyisthegoal#purposedrivenlife#notoignorance#notonaivete#wewillmakeit#imrootingforyou
