ontological humility

All the people I know, who truly excel at what they’re doing, are extremely humble. Additionally, great teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, developers… rarely seem to be satisfied with their work and have tons of pointers on how to improve.

As Fred Kofman wrote in the book Conscious business: “ontological humility is the acknowledgment that you do not have a special claim on reality or truth and, that others have equally valid perspectives deserving respect and consideration.”

Is humility a prerequisite for greatness?
