I can disagree with your opinion but not with your experience


People like to talk, most of the time they don’t really understand the subject they are arguing about. I have a friend that would disagree about anything you say no matter what it is or who you are. 

A funny thing that happened once is that he started arguing with another friend who is a pilot. This guy flies and lands planes for a living, just the face he’s still alive means he’s doing his job right. And this guy is arguing with the pilot about the speed at which he approaches a landing (are you kidding me?). When I asked this friend how he can argue with someone who flies planes for a living he commented that even though it’s his job he (my arguing friend) can still know the facts better.

My point is there will always be people like that all around us. We need to pick out battles so we don’t wear ourselves out. Clients and friends can argue about our opinions as much as they want, but when they argue about our experience they don’t know what they are talking about. If someone is adamant about arguing with you about your experience let it go, there’s no reasoning with that person. Your sanity is way more important.

I hope you found this post helpful, if so like it and share it with your friends. And while you’re at it, check out my ebook ‘level up your business’ a guide to starting your own business the right way.
