I don't know

Updated: Sep 25, 2020

Guess what. It’s okay to admit you don’t know something, to not have the answer, or to not have the ideal solution ready to go. Since reading that there’s value in intellectual humility and admitting you don’t know something, I’ve been reminding myself it’s OK to not have all of the answers and trying to put myself out there and be more comfortable with accepting and admitting that I don’t have all of the answers.

Intellectual humility is not only beneficial in your own learning; it also beneficial in team/organizational learning, too. It’s not always easy to admit you don’t know as you may assume that you’re making yourself vulnerable, but test that assumption and give it a try. It may spark up a greater discussion that gets to the best answer, and you may find that you earn respect from others by admitting you don't know.
