Being Right Is Not A Strategy

The person with the best description of the problem doesn’t win anything. The one who most completely understands who’s at fault hasn’t undone any damage. She with the highest standards of verifiable deniability is not really making a contribution.

What if we put as much energy into constructing solutions as we did into describing problems? What if the courage we’re deploying to oppose The System were dispatched to build a new system, based on connection and partnership and all the other things we value?

Giving a damn is a much better strategy than being right.
