Advice from Jeff Bezos

I found this really interesting advice from Jeff Bezos. He gave the advice during a visit to the 37 Signals office. Essentially he said that “…people who were right a lot of the time were people who often changed their minds.

That advice makes me feel better about not having these set-in-stone, very strong opinions about most topics. I find that I need to consider other opinions, accept the fact that I might be wrong when looking at an issue or problem and weigh other ideas. It’s not that I don’t believe strongly in things, but I find lots of exceptions in the world and I’m not sure a simple, short way of explaining the world makes sense.

In other words, lots of gray, not much black and white.
