Blog Past: Talking to Others to Clarify to Self

From a post a year ago:

Over time, I have learnt not to worry about the success rate of meetings – new opportunities creation requires many meetings, and one should not aim for a 100% success ratio….As I put forth my ideas to people I met, I also found me talking to myself. Each meeting helped refine some element of what I was proposing – either via a question that was asked, a comment that was made, or a criticism that was voiced. I like that approach of building up ideas because one can only do so much in a vacuum.

Too often, we end up with a very narrow perspective because we don’t tend to meet people with experiences and cultures very different from our own.
