Saying “I don’t know” and adopting a growth mindset are powerful means for becoming smarter and more skilled individuals. This allows you to get curious, creative and ask questions so that you can obtain the knowledge you currently lack.
There is a flip side to saying “I don’t know” and that is when you think you should know. When you think that not knowing means something about you.
To be clear, you not knowing is not the problem. The problem is when you say “I don’t know” and instead of trusting that you will use the resource available to you to figure it out, you sit there and spin and turn in IDK Ville.
The meaning you apply to saying “I don’t know” makes a huge difference in how you will proceed. Listen in as I share some strategies on how you can keep going rather than staying stuck in IDK Ville.
