Smart Enough to Know Better

A friend of mine said to me while discussing a work issue, “I’m smart enough to know better, but not smart enough to know why.” His meaning was that he knew he was being taken advantage of, he just didn’t know exactly how.

Discernment is a large part of being an entrepreneur. You don’t always have to know everything, but acknowledging that you don’t know everything means you’re smart enough to know you’re not smart enough.

Discernment also means a willingness to identify and accept the gaps you or your business have. The next step is the willingness to fill those gaps.
