The Three Hardest Words for Someone to Say

The Three Hardest Words to Say

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

In many ways, I am considered an expert at what I do.

One of the problems I have in being an expert is my intense desire to meet people’s expectations of me.. Unfortunately, this brings out the quality in me, and want to please people.

With that, I find it very hard to say three simple words that I need to say at different times.

The words are, “I don’t know.”

I have to go so far as to practice saying this with my family so that I can say it professionally.

Can you pick a place to say, “I don’t know,” today?
