When you hear someone make a statement that you do not agree with, do you wait for them to finish their reasoning before you pass judgement?
Or do you write them off before you even allow yourself to really take it in and analyze their logic.
Sometimes I catch myself just mentally turning off when I hear certain things. It’s not good. I don’t learn from that.
Being open minded allows your thoughts to grow. It may strengthen your argument, make you consider something you never have before, completely change your mind, or just confirm your personal opinion. Either way, it’s a winning scenario.
Make the effort to consider both sides. It’s worth it.
