Find the dissenters
I’ve started looking really hard for people who disagree with me.
I blog a lot about games. I’m the free-to-play guy talking to console developers about how it is the future. I am convinced.
But I find that I learn, and think, and listen a lot more when I am talking to the sceptics, not the converts. They force me to challenge my own views, to become more sophisticated in my thinking, to give better advice and have better perspective.
Once you’ve formed your view of something – business, politics, game design, whatever – go look for the dissenters. One conversation with them will teach you a lot more than a hundred conversations with people who agree with you.
