Naked Leader Week 804 – 14 January 2019
Time to Read: 42 seconds
We’ve all been there and heard it, and done it ourselves. When presenting, debating, even just having a chat, we quote from authority – an Historian, an expert, a book etc. etc.
My advice is – don’t, or at the very least, be very very careful
The big danger of doing this, is that there will almost always be an equal or opposite opinion / fact / research that supports the equal and opposite opinion
I would never call myself an authority – I am an ordinary guy and I speak from my own experience. That hasn’t stopped people quoting me to support their arguments.
Please, don’t, instead:
- Form your own opinion and state it as just that – your opinion, or belief
- Use your own personal experience and story to illustrate a point you wish to make
- Instead of talking – do something – and see if it works for you
With my love and best wishes
