‘Let’s stop pretending like we’re all experts. Let’s talk about what we do know, but then admit what we don’t know. I think those are the three most important words you can say, ‘I don’t know’. This is part of the curiosity. Once you identify what you don’t know, then you can start to build something.’
~ Jeff Harry
