“The delusion that you’re perfect – or that if you just do the right thing, things will always work out OK – makes you resistant to change and fearful of failure… you’d rather not discover that you’re imperfect, that maybe what you were doing was wrong. The more people can go through these discoveries the better.” – Esther Dyson, US knowledge entrepreneur.
This is a very important point that Esther makes. Anyone who believes they are perfect is going to have a very difficult time in business.
Was there a particular moment in your entrepreneurial career that made you realise that you were not perfect?
