Who is right is less important than what is right. When the focus is who, it’s mostly on you. Your desire to be right even when you’re wrong. This can lead to thinking the world should work in a way it doesn’t. Outcome over ego.
– Shane Parrish
One of the great self-deceptions – and one of the great foolishnesses – is to tell yourself, Only I will know. Only you will know that you are a liar; only you will know you deal unethically with people who trust you; only you will know you have no intention of honoring your promise. Whose knowledge or judgment do you imagine is more important? It is precisely your own ego from which there is no escape.
– Nathaniel Branden
