Why you should be the dumbest person in the room

I like this quote from Noah Callahan-Bever, editor in chief of Complex Magazine:

If you surround yourself with the smartest people you can find, people will think you’re a lot smarter than you are. Only insecure people think this works the other way.”

I learn much more when I surround myself with smart people.

And I’ve very privileged to be the dumbest person in the room most of the time.

Seriously.

Now if I can just work on getting people to think I’m smarter than I am, I’d have it made.

But seriously… do you surround yourself in your ministry with people that are smarter than you?

It’s really how you grow and get things done.

Who should you search out today for lunch?  Someone that’s smarter than you?  Someone that intimidates the pants off of you?

Make the call!

Be stupid!

Thoughts?
