If You Mistakenly Follow Right
What is the opposite of right? Before you shout left, let me be more specific.
What is the opposite of right as in correct?
Once upon a time my immediate response would have been ‘wrong’ as in incorrect. With scratches and scars that tell of me not knowing my left from my right, I now believe that the opposite of right is… learning… as in teaching moment.
I have never learned as much from being right as I have gained from being wrong. So I wonder:
Why do we only have positive role models? How about a few negative ones!
Many of us will gain more by trying to be less like poor Mr. X rather than striving to be more like spectacular Mrs. Y.
This applies equally to companies. Don’t always compare yourself to a better competitor. Compare yourself to a worse one to see what you should avoid doing at all costs.
Welcome to my side of the nonsense divide.
