When You Think You Know Everything You Sometimes Don’t

Sometimes it pays to get that document or record when you “think you know everything.” One reason is that you might be incorrect in what you “think” you know. The other is that the record may contain an uncommon notation or comment providing information you never even thought about it providing.

Sometimes the greatest discoveries are in those records where we think we “don’t need that record” because we already know what’s on it.

You may be surprised.
