To Be Wrong
Start being wrong and suddenly anything is possible. You’re no longer infallible. You’re in the unknown. There’s no way of knowing what can happen, but there’s more chance of it being amazing than if you try to be right. Of course, being wrong is a risk…Risks are a measure of people. People who won’t take them are trying to preserve what they have.

What if we were just for a hypothetical moment to consider some of our most entrenched beliefs to be wrong? What would life look like through that lens? What would our friends and family look like though that lens?
Would we, in knowing we could be wrong, be more honest? More transparent? More humble? More graceful? More dependent on each other?
