I've always read these messages from SparkPeople, but I've never really felt the need to write much about them. However, today's quote is something I've always thought about, in every aspect of life.
"Do not be afraid to ask dumb questions. They are easier to handle than dumb mistakes."
People are always telling me that they have a dumb or stupid question to ask. And, I always find that it isn't a stupid question. The only dumb question is the one that you DON'T ask.
I mean, really, if you don't know the answer, you should ask the question. How else could you possibly learn what you need to know. I've never been afraid to ask a question. Sure, there might be someone out there that thinks I'm an idiot because I didn't know the answer already. But, I would rather seem stupid to one person now, than seem like a real idiot to a LOT of people a little later on.
Life is all about learning. Only a real idiot is going to think your question is dumb or stupid. Assuming you didn't know the answer BEFORE you asked...
