Conventional Wisdom and Green Jackets

Conventional wisdom is the body of ideas or explanations generally accepted as true by the public or by experts in a field.

But it has a hard time predicting what really will unfold.

It didn’t plan on Wichita State being in the Final Four.

It never saw the potential for a billion Facebook users.

And it has a hard time defining and wrapping its hands around art, beauty, experience, fulfillment, and meaning.

So why buy into it?

Why pursue it at the cost of losing everything you are actually after?

Metaphorically, all of us want a green jacket in something. But here’s the deal – all of the green jacket owners you have seen or know have taken very unconventional paths to get there.

Shape your shots and release yourself from the crutch of conventional thinking.
