Ep 168: If You’re The Smartest Person in the Room, You’re in the Wrong Room

Listen to the Episode Here:

You may have heard the aphorism “If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room” a hundred of times. It does sound like empowering wisdom that should be shared to others but I would like to believe otherwise. In today’s conversation, we would tackle this famous saying as we dissect this phrase down and would look at how brilliance – as a quality of being – creates this experience of being the smartest.

Does moving into a new room help with addressing your dilemma? What made you create this pattern of moving rooms in the first place? We’ll examine these points of discussion and more as I’ll discuss how this phrase is used, why simply transferring rooms doesn’t change who we are, and why doing nothing and letting it be is the best solution to this challenge.
