Be Careful About Listening Too Well

Be Careful About Listening Too Well

Beware the “experts” who have no consequences for being wrong (unlike consultants, who would be thrown out and/or never invited back).

I was told Apple’s ascent couldn’t last. Tom Brady would never win a third Super Bowl. Trump would never get the Republican nomination. Netflix was doomed after they raised their rental prices.

Just because someone is in the media, or has written a book, or stands on a stage, doesn’t make them an expert and certainly not a seer.

Prophets seldom provide profits.
