Who can this quote be attributed to? "If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room."
Regardless of who said it, the quote has quite a bit of wisdom to impart. If you truly are the smartest person in the room why are you still there? If you are that smart you should be aware that the only way to keep growing and progressing in life if to be around people who you can learn from. If you are never challenged you will stagnate. Continuing to develop all your vast areas of knowledge means surrounding yourself with people smarter than you are, people who are more charismatic, funnier, more technologically advanced, more adept at social media, more analytical â€¦Oh, you get the idea. Make this a general practice as well as a specific one. By specific I mean to define an area you want to grow in then find people to connect with who are better at it than you are.
One other point â€“ Those who walk around congratulating themselves on being the smartest person in the room may have an ego that is blocking their ability to grow. Even if you are the master teaching the student there is something you can learn from the one looking to you for knowledge. Everyone has something to teach and it is possible to learn something from every person with whom you come into contact with. Looking to everyone as a source of knowledge is the true way to grow. Plus who really cares who is the smartest in the room today, when someone smarter is bound to come along tomorrow. Those who are focused on being/becoming/reclaiming the title as the smartest person in the room fail to see and capitalize on all the incredible opportunities there are to gain from the others sharing the room instead of wasting all their energy on a meaningless designation.
