Why What We Don't Know Is More Important Than What We Do

There is a certain logic that knowledge is our most vital resource in any collaborative effort. What we know matters. The more we think we know, the more certain we feel. 

As it turns out, what we don't know is more important than what we do because we don't move at the rate of our knowing. We move at the rate of our questions. Beyond that, anything new requires new knowing. What we already know leads to what we already have. What we don't know opens doors to what we don't have. Good questions have this power.
