hedge your bets

Every explanation we give is a simplification.

There’s always more to it than we can possibly hope to capture. More detail, more nuance.

But still we feel the need to add caveats to our comments. We’re worried about being misunderstood.

Why is that? What purpose does it serve? If all we’re trying to do is appeal to as many different people as possible, what we come up with probably isn’t worth saying.

So stop doing it. Say what you think. Make your point unapologetically.

And let people judge.
