“In times of rapid change, experience could be your worst enemy.”
~J. Paul Getty
The times we live in are unique in our lifetimes and require a new way of thinking. Individuals, enterprises and communities that are prospering are those not relying on experience and working harder at what used to bring success or solve problems. They are the ones who thrive on change, and thrill at uncovering new ideas and ways of thinking. Are you relying on your “experience” to work through the challenges of our current day? Or are you staying hungry and thriving on change?
Only highly creative people tend to have fluid, flexible, adaptive minds. I believe in these 3 statements which anyone can learn by practice. 1.) Admit when your wrong – “I was wrong”, 2.) Face up to mistakes – “I made a mistake”, 3.) Be flexible with new information – “I changed my mind”.
Have a nice day!
