So many people have this terrible, credibility altering habit of immediately saying "I don't know" after they speak. Now why they do this... 'I don't know' lol. The first thing to do to stop this habit is to make a new habit of only speaking on things you're knowledgable on. Not saying dont talk unless you're on google level accuracy on a topic but we too often love to insert our opinions on things into conversations and serve them as facts. Then we throw an "I don't know" on the end in case someone decides to call B.S. on us. Just try to keep things that are facts, facts. And when talking about your opinions, just say so and add a "well my opinion on it is..." or "I feel/think...." etc. Saying you don't know as you speak is not only pointless but alters the perception of you and makes you apoear untrustworthy even to yourself because why would be speaking of things 'you don't know'. If whatever you're saying is right, you just made your listener question you and if whatever you're saying ends up being wrong, just say sorry and keep it moving. We fear being wrong so much these days that we try to avoid accountability in most things that we do. Its really ok to be wrong sometimes and make mistakes amd completley mess something up. No one ever really gets that upset over those things when you have a genuine attitude and the ability to say sorry and help find a solution to a problem. So go out there and be confident in your words and be humble enough to be quiet when you actually don't know something.
