I’m The Dumbest Person in the Room


Peter Thiel: “What’s something true, that almost nobody agrees with you on?”

I got the the point where I don’t have many beliefs and opinions any more.

This weekend I met one guy whose life 99% of people wouldn’t believe it can be true.

This it the type of guy that makes me realize why most tv series and movies suck.

All this entertainment shows pop and drama instead of the cold harsh truth of life. They strengthen stereotypes instead of breaking them.

Or maybe this one belief of the very few I have is actually wrong.

The truth is: I don’t know anything.

That’s why I don’t talk much.

I’m now going to double down on asking silly questions and then listening. This is how I got to meet that guy anyway.

So what’s new?

I stopped having expectations. I feel more free that way.

I stopped wearing watches. I don’t care what time it is. I’ll be the one switching off the light anyway.

I stopped buying clothes. I already have more than enough for the next 2 years anyway.

I stopped planning my next move. I don’t think much about the future anyway.

So what do I do?

I’m breaking myself while pushing the personal and professional limits I reach.

I make assumptions about the world and then I test them.

Because I don’t know a thing about anything any more.

So wherever I go I know I’m the dumbest person in the room.

  1. Daniel, welcome back. You have grown up and became a wonderful adult. This article means so much to me because it states exactly what I’m thinking. The difference is that I reached to this conclusion about two years ago, still later in my lifetime than you did though. I told you a while ago that you were too wise for you years. 🙂
