Walking in the mechanic shop, I wonder it'd pan out with my car. Somehow, this line popped out in my mind: 龙游浅水遭虾戏，虎落平原被犬欺- as I didn't know much about car - neither did I know the machinery, nor I knew those terminology the mechanic talked about. I felt like meat on the chop bench. Loyalty is so rare that you can't hardly find trust - trust breeds loyalty.
Out of your expertise, you're intimidated by those buzzy words. In reality, you're out of your expertise, out of your experience, dealing with life issues, from different angles. It's human curse, facing the unknown.
IBM is struggling. But former CEO Sam Palmisano said: People say you have to be smart—I don't know if I'm smart. i'm smart in my own area, so I stay within the boundary of my own expertise.
It's easier said than done. How do you know the boundary? I've seen experts got inflated by flattering, becoming "know-it-all" super scientist.
