Got Intellectual Inflexibility?

When we think we already know.

Much suffering in our world has come from intellectual inflexibility. It’s a serious occupational hazard…in any occupation.

To keep me from becoming antiquated, stuck, arrogant, and intolerant, I most definitely should:

  • Listen to those whom I think don’t know anything
  • Quit spouting my opinions
  • Refuse to be territorial in my areas of “expertise”
  • Say yes instead of no
  • Catch myself when I am shutting down to, instead of hearing, advice or opinions contrary to my own
