Shreyas Doshi+ Your Authors @shreyas early PM & first PM lead @stripe. formerly a PM lead @twitter @google @yahoo. I share offbeat ideas hereโ€”useful for some, useless for many, not for everyone โค๏ธ May. 15, 2020 1 min read + Your Authors

When people come across an idea, they judge 2 things:
1. The ๐˜ข๐˜ถ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ of the idea originator
2. The ๐˜ท๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ of the idea itself

#1 is far more dominant than #2 for most people

This leads to drastically slower learning

And even wrong learning (Authority bias)

A simple modified policy to cultivate wisdom:

Learn from everyone.

In every interaction, ask yourself โ€œwhat can I learn from this person?โ€

Do this without regard to their external success & accomplishments.

View others as exactly equal to you: not inferior, not superior.

Wisdom intake algorithm:
โ€ข Be open to new ideas as you come across them
โ€ข Evaluate without judgment
โ€ข Take what resonates
โ€ข Discard what doesnโ€™t

Wisdom is everywhere.

I consciously started doing this about 3 years ago. Night & day difference in rate of personal growth. YMMV
