The other day I asked when was the last time you changed your mind. I got some interesting responses, ranging from politics, to even choosing the right career.
Changing your mind, is often seen as a bad thing, but I think it should be encouraged more. Further, I changing your mind is incredibly difficult. We are all loaded to the brim with biases, many of which we don’t even realize. In today’s internet culture, it’s incredibly easy to find stats or articles that reaffirm your beliefs.
Which is one of the main reasons we are so divided.
There are certainly some things where it makes sense to “stick to your guns”, but many times, a new perspective can unlock incredibly a fulfilling reality, that we are too stubborn to explore.
