Ask the Stupid Questions

Written By: Lauren Howard

I will only give you one piece of career advice.

Ask the stupid questions.

When you have a question and doubt whether you should ask it because no one else is, ask it anyway.

Those “dumb questions” rarely, if ever, make you look dumb. In fact, they often make you look curious and insightful.

In my experience, when I have question that I think must be dumb because no one else is asking it, it’s usually because everyone else is staying quiet for the same reason.

When you get comfortable with the potential for looking “stupid,” you end up learning more and hardly ever actually looking anything other than informed.

So ask the stupid questions. Anyone who would try to make you feel stupid for having questions can eat dirt.
