Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #093 — Open your umbrella.

I recently came across a scathing slapback for which John Maynard Keynes is credited. In fact, so is Winston Churchill. Sadly we have no definitive proof of the origin of this stellar rejoinder:

“When the facts change, I change my mind. What do you do, sir?”

What is clear, however, is that closed-mindedness is not a new phenomenon. A mind is like an umbrella. They both work best when open.

Facts change, circumstances evolve, environments shift. With the speed at which change is now occurring, one can no longer afford a closed mind – one which ignores a change in favor of existing knowledge. A closed mind is left behind.

When things change, what do you do?
