Many a times we apologize for not knowing. Why must we? Instead of being morose about it, shouldn’t we be in a celebratory mood and rejoice that we don’t know.
When posed with a question or a situation where we have no answer to it, the first mode is for us to dig deep to find out if we know or not. This endevour is a phase of introspecting and connecting to many learning and experiences. That itself is a rare occasion that is meaningful for us to freshen up our own learning.
There is no ‘real’ thinking involved in knowing the answers. It is just a mere act of regurgitating
As we realise we don’t know, questions start popping out. This question allows you to open the gates to learning and also is an opportunity for others to learn by teaching you and at the same time an opportunity for others to be in a contribution… Isn’t that wonderful?
Now, are we going to apologize for not knowing what what comes out of all that is just pure value? No. We should say, Thank you I don’t know, not Sorry, I don’t know 🙂
