Beware the consensus

Tell ten people to get ice cream.

If they have to reach consensus on a flavour, they’ll pick chocolate or vanilla every time.

Groups of people don’t agree on what’s cool or interesting.

They agree on what’s easy.

“Consensus” is just another way of saying average.

If you settle for average, you can’t be an entrepreneur.

Beware the consensus.
