I could not find any noteworthy origins to this concept. Confused Eek

Interviewer: Can you explain jazz?
Yogi Berra: I can’t, but I will.
90% of all jazz is half improvisation. The other half is the part people play while others are playing something they never played with anyone who played that part.
So if you play the wrong part, its right. If you play the right part, it might be right if you play it wrong enough. But if you play it too right, it’s wrong.

“If you just want to get on in the world it is not most conducive to your interests to be too right. It is rather better to let others imagine that they are right, and you wrong.”
~ Sir David Wilkie

As a great man once said, “I know that I won’t be right, I can only hope that I won't be too wrong.” … I hope that we won’t be too wrong. But also in trying to be too right, we have to be a little careful, because understanding that we won't get our predictions about the future right can help prevent us from becoming too narrow a force that can’t respond to the unexpected.

Thanks so much Jon,

I especially like Sir David Wilkie and Gen Jones.

Jones comment about not be so narrow minded (or right) that I can't respond to the unexpected is excellent food for thought.

Sincerely

Michael

Along the lines of:

The perfect solution is not always the best answer.
