In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is the King.
It's laughable that we each assume ourselves to be Kings and Queens while living in a small island of the "blind". We may be extremely specialized in one area, but within a team of people that is ignorant of our focus of specialization (while being experts in their niche/area of specialty), it is amusing how each member blithely presumes to be the "King", the final authority in their land.
Always remember - you are just the one-eyed member in your ignorant group.
Let it be your pursuit to locate the two-eyed person with brilliant 20/20 vision, in both your niche and those of others. And first listen and learn, before defending and challenging.
