“If you see things differently than others, congratulations. You’re thinking for yourself.
If you find yourself pressured into thinking like everyone else, that’s a sign your opinion threatens. It’s too powerful to be dismissed out-of-hand, and that’s why they want to shut you up.
If the status quo is angered by your theory, you’re likely onto something. Stick to your guns.
If your boss doesn’t want to hear your contrarian opinion, that’s because it cannot be easily dismissed. That’s reason enough to say it.”: The Courage To Speak Up | Shipulski On Design
