The Danger of Agreeable People
I like spending time with people who share my perspectives on life, success, and various other key topics… And I bet you do too!
There is nothing wrong with listening to and learning from people with whom you are philosophically aligned. There is a problem, however, if those are the only people’s views you ever hear because when everyone is saying the same thing, you don’t even question the underlying assumptions. Not only do you miss opportunities to stay ahead of the wave, you also miss important insights into the strengths, weaknesses and sales opportunities in front of you.
Please note: I’m not talking about the type of people who simply stir up controversy for the sake of argument, but those who have a different perspective and view.
