Our vantage points and perspectives differ and they matter when making decisions which is why it is important to do your best to understand as much of the environment as possible. Understand what and who influences decisions.
As you progress in your career, your priorities and responsibilities will change and so will your decisions. It is important to do your best in trying to understand how and why decisions are made and what has influence on the final outcomes. In my career, I’ve come across decisions I didn’t understand and didn’t agree with (some of them I STILL don’t understand or agree with), but it is important to differentiate between questioning everything (which is generally good) and simply refusing to accept a decision without any effort to understand the circumstances (which is not good).
“Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes” – American proverb
Listen, learn, question everything, speak, advance, grow, contribute, yet be mindful that the same area might be seen differently based on vision, strategy and importance from different perspectives and vantage points.
