Being Right February 2, 2008

There is a significant difference between being “right” and having the ability to articulate and persuade others that you are right.

When the Death Star was built, I’m sure some low-level engineer tried to mention the exhaust ports are vulnerable to proton torpedoes, but he was unable to persuade others that he was right.

If you aren’t naturally articulate and persuasive, then you must spend time preparing and practicing your talking points in order to get your point across.
