When was the last time you LEARNED something?
BETTER YET: When was the last time you UNLEARNED something?
How often do you THINK about things?
BETTER YET: How often do you RETHINK things?
Or, when was the last time you simply CHANGED YOUR MIND?
I’d argue it’s almost MORE important for you to RETHINK than THINK, to UNLEARN than LEARN. So often, we struggle to UPDATE our thinking. This causes us to be “STUCK” or “FIXED”
On the second page of his 2021 book, Think Again, Adam Grant writes the following:
“Intelligence is traditionally viewed as the ability to think and learn. Yet in a turbulent world, there’s another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn.”
I’ve found NOTHING to be more true than THIS.
Thanks Scott Ko, for making us smile now anytime we change our minds in this house (which is often!).
And, thanks Adam Grant for writing such an outstanding book!
