Rule for a White House spokesman: Don't be afraid to say, "I don't know." You may look dumb, but if you don't know you can't give them hot air because it always shows on your face.
"I don't know." We choke on these words. We would rather make up an answer than have to admit that we do not know. Why? Do you expect everyone you meet to provide you with answers to all your questions? Have you ever talked to someone who says anything that comes to mind, just to provide some "words" to your questions? Would you rather people be honest with you, tell you if they do not know? Sometimes it takes more courage to say "I don't know." than to try and give false information. So, why do you have unrealistic expectations of yourself? Perhaps you fear rejection, by others as well as yourself, for not having the answer. Remember, not all questions have answers. And, certainly no one can answer every question asked. Allow yourself to be "human" and say, "I don't know."
