Sara’s Quote is:
Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else. — Sara Blakely
Have you ever heard someone in business utter the phrase:
“Oh, That’s the way we’ve always done it!”
I cannot stand to hear that phrase. It means that you were told to ALWAYS do it that way and don’t have your own brain to come up with a better way to do things. OR, you don’t have a brain to come up with a better way to do things. Neither of which I would want to work with, in most cases.Don't be intimidated by what you don't know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else. -- Sara Blakely Click To Tweet
I am familiar with Sara Blakely, coming from Atlanta. I have seen Sara interviewed on several TV programs and have a good sense of her great attitude that is part of why she said this and know that is what got her to where she is today. Oh, and if you know Sara, or Sara, if you are listening, I would love to have Sara on Goal Getting Podcast. You can contact me and let me know how we can get you on the show.
What I think Sara is saying here is just because you don’t know how to do something, don’t let that intimidate you from doing it. If you have an idea, it may be better, more helpful for you to not know so much. It may allow you to use your mind to think of better ways, more efficient or creative ways to do things, or be something.
Don’t let the fact that you don’t know something, go out and do it anyway. You can learn along the way. You may also be able to avoid the “We’ve Always Done It That Way.” thinking.
Go out and Make Today A Great Day.
