Everytime someone can demonstrate to me that I’m in error, a bright new bulb lights up my dim wit. That’s why it’s good to be wrong — not because we should hang on to our mistakes, but because acknowledging error is the foundation of learning. I’ve watched countless people sacrifice relationships , careers, even life itself, just for their own rightness. Now, is that really worth it? You’ll see that while insisting that you’re right is gratifying, accepting that you’re wrong can be transformative.
