[Guest Post] Why Being The Smartest Person in The Room is The Dumbest Thing You Can Be

I recently published an article on The Mission where I focus on why it’s the dumbest idea to be the smartest person in the room. I wanted to tell you about this post here, and if you like what you see, you may like to read the rest.

Anyways… this is how the post begins

I have never been the best at anything. I would spend a lot time growing up, imagining myself as someone I wasn’t. I would picture the talk shows and the interviews, and the inspiring stories my fictional self would share.

I grew up playing a lot of sports. Always okay, but never great.

I wasn’t unintelligent, but I’ve never been what you would consider academic.

Moving into adult life, I continued this mediocrity (decent education, decent job, decent books…). I’ve never been bad at anything, but I’ve never been great or the best.

So I would imagine it, and play out these ‘dream interviews’ in my mind.

I hoped to be the ‘smartest’ and ‘best’ in the room, but now I appreciate how dumb this is.
