On Being Wrong: Great TED Talk

http://video.ted.com/assets/player/swf/EmbedPlayer.swf

“If you really want to rediscover wonder, you need to step outside of that tiny, terrified space of rightness and look around at each other and look out at the vastness and complexity and mystery of the universe and be able to say, ‘Wow, I don’t know. Maybe I’m wrong.’”

    Hi Dosho,Amen once again!!!She is so right about us accepting that we may be wrong, knowing that we don't know and that that's good. What a relief!I had a boss for a number of years who was very difficult to get along with. My fellow toolmakers and I were always walking on eggshells around him.His favorite saying was, "I was wrong once……..I thought I was wrong, but I wasn't."I think now that it was his attempt at being funny, but we weren't laughing because it appeared to us that he really believed it!Needless to say, he was not a happy man, until he got divorced for the second time, quit drinking and married a third and much more compatible wife.After that, he actually became more jovial and we got to be quite good friends.Happy 4th of July!!!But don't blowyour fingers offwith firecrackers……Lars!
