Looking stupid as a rule

Lots of people talk about the willingness to look stupid.

Lately I’ve been trying to take it a step further: when I think “asking or doing X may make me look stupid” then I have to do it.

That’s the rule. I must do the things that may make me look stupid. It’s more than a willingness, it’s a policy.

I like that it takes the choice out of it. I don’t have to hem and haw about whether it’s valuable enough to be worth it. I just do it, or else I’m cheating.
