Reasoned Debate – How We All Do Things Is Slightly Different

Your approach to things may differ from how others do it, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong. You may need to have a reasoned debate about the merits of your approach rather than dismissing it because it is not mainstream or the echo chamber says you are wrong.

Even if your methods don’t align with the mainstream, they can still be effective. Your slightly unconventional approach may better suit your unique needs and circumstances. It may be the next best thing or the newest method. Your market, facility, people, experience, education, environment, and more may produce outstanding results and, therefore, knock out conventional wisdom the “right way.”

If what you are doing produces extraordinary results, it doesn’t mean you are doing them incorrectly. Don’t be quick to question something that works well for you simply because it doesn’t align with the mainstream.

When you decide on a directive, strategy, or tactic, you need to own it and not waffle on your decision. Full implementation may take a while, and if you see forward progress, don’t keep changing direction.

At the end of the day, if your approach is delivering results, that’s what matters most. We shouldn’t feel compelled to justify ourselves or change to fit someone else’s approach or view. 

As long as sound arguments support your methods, you should be confident about your chosen path. After all, some of the most groundbreaking achievements have come from challenging yourself and the status quo.
