Before engaging in anything ask yourself this question
Our egos don’t like being wrong.
Because of that, they will bend, twist, and shake our memories into being right. This action leads to inflexibility.
We’ve sat in a meeting with our boss and seen this happen a thousand times. It is easy to see someone else do this.
Unfortunately, we do the same thing. You do it, and I do it.
One method I use when deciding is asking myself “What would make you change your mind?”
Then I write it down! (this part is essential)
When you ask yourself this question, you don’t let your mind play any games. When you write it down, you’ll have a checklist in front of you designed to help yourself get over your ego.
Whenever you check in on the project, you’ve built a list of questions that help you get over the hump and pivot.
