Is it better to have conviction and be wrong or have no conviction?
This is an interesting and important question to me. My answer has definitely evolved, but for now, I answer it in a few parts:
The first is that conviction, in today's world, is rare and important.
The problem, however, is that when we encourage conviction, we often get a lot of people who possess conviction, but are wrong about it.
We get a lot of "fakes" out there who really do not have tons of technical experience/exposure to different things.
So what is better?
I am not sure about this answer. What do you think?
I think that strong opinions weakly held are best.
I try to ground my perspective in facts rather than ego and fluff.
This can be really hard, and most of us fail at it, but it is something I am working towards.
