When somebody really smart sits in front of me and they tell
me something that I just think sounds insane, I think twice.
So I’ve learned that over the course of time.
So I don’t know if there’s any heuristics,
but I always pay attention to things that disprove a belief I have.
So in other words, if I have a sort of set thinking
in a certain market vertical or something,
and then somebody comes and shows me that what
I believed as my set of truths to be wrong,
that’s when I really pay attention.
This is a small example but Practice Fusion– we
thought acquiring doctors’ offices is going to
be a feet-on-the-street trench warfare effort.
They figured out how to do it online.
And that really made me wake up.
How did that work?
And then we talked to that model.
So a lot of times it is when you have a belief system,
you’ve seen a lot, it’s when somebody shows
you something that just surprises you.
And that’s when you learn to really pay attention.
