Harness the power of doubt.

Doubts can be a powerful medium of change if used effectively. In order to develop effective thinking, we must discard our fallacies. Doubts can help us discover those fallacies.

Instructions

  1. From now on, when you hear an objection that questions the validity of your ideas, beliefs, and solutions, don't ignore them.
    Instead, listen to their opinions about your thoughts and strive to understand their point of view. Realize the reasoning behind their questions.
  2. View those doubts with an open mind.
    If they propose concrete evidence for their opinions and point out the gaps in yours, consider the benefits and implications of letting go of your current beliefs. See if there is truth in the other person's view. Compare the truths behind your reasoning and theirs.
  3. If you think there is value in adopting the new set of ideas, then be willing to change without letting your biases get in the way.
