But something about that message bothered me.
I am in the business of sharing knowledge. The exception might be during a product launch, financial reporting, etc, secrecy is important - because timing is key. Loose lips sinks ships, and all that.
But the saying, 'Never Tell Everything You Know,' has a distinct aroma of fear.
The underlying suggestion is that if others knew what you know - you are obsolete. Powerless. Unnecessary.
Knowledge - wisdom gleaned from study and experience - is the reason why books, classes, youtube videos are valued! I'm grateful to others who have informed and instructed me along the way.
So I have become of fan of giving away ALL my insight, experience, knowledge.
For Three Reasons.
1. Even if it were possible to tell everything - everyone has filters and only hear part of what someone says.
That's why we need repeated information, told through different methods, mediums. I want to be a part of that process.
2. There is only one YOU.
Irreplaceable. Unique. A person is much more than the information shared. Delivery, style, essence all plays an important part of your message. That's why different yoga studios survive, even though they all teach . . . yoga!
3. It's much more fun.
Exchanging information is not only liberating, but reciprocal. Stepping into the give-and-take flow opens up so many unexpected avenues.
So, have at it.
And then share with others.
