Changing your mind

Give yourself permission to change your mind. Respectfully extend that courtesy to others as well.

It’s good, valuable, important for you to be consistent in your thinking. Yet it’s not helpful to be stubborn just for the sake of being stubborn.

Admitting that you were mistaken is rarely an easy thing to do. However, it’s a whole lot better than doubling down on what you know is not true.

Conditions change, priorities change, new information becomes available, time and experience provide fresh insight. What made perfect sense in the past could become the wrong choice in the present.

You’re not locked into what you once thought just because you thought it, or said it, or did it. When circumstances warrant, you have the option to change your mind.

Go with what’s most accurate and beneficial. If that means changing your mind, have the courage and the honesty to do so.

— Ralph Marston
