On Being Wrong

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Being wrong is hard. Admitting that you’re wrong is even harder.
Or, rather, being wrong is easy (or it should be) as we’re wrong about a ton of things – probably more things than we realize.
It’s coming to terms with this reality and then saying it aloud and opening yourself up to feedback which can make or break a relationship, a family, a project, or even an organization and beyond.

Kathryn Schulz reminds me with straight-talk about embracing our fallibility and even, perhaps, liking it:

Here are a few tidbits that I enjoyed:
We’re like that coyote, after he’s gone off the cliff but before he looks down. We’re already in trouble, but we feel like we’re on solid ground.
I’m a fan of Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote. I mean, I grew up with that stuff!
Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner
Trusting too much on the feeling of being on the correct side of anything can be very dangerous.
The internal sense of rightness is not always the most reliable guide to what is really happening in the external world. Imagine if we were to be more open and honest about this type of stuff in our relationships and our work.
Imagine if we started with the assumption that we are wrong and it’s our duty, responsibility, and opportunity to prove ourselves right. I think things would be different.
