Cultivating an Attitude of Wisdom

Tom Kelley, IDEO

Be confident in what you know well, but be distrusting enough of what you don’t know to keep yourself learning more at all times. This axiom will keep life-long learners of innovation thirsting to know more, broaden their skill set, and continuously second-guessing themselves in a way that will promote growth and knowledge, says Tom Kelley, General Manager of IDEO. Resting on your laurels, says Kelley, is never a good idea, and it’s not served anyone – including Caesar – very well.
