30 Days of Abraham Lincoln – Day 15

I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors; and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views. — 1862

My Take – Flexibility and openness to good criticism and new ideas are the key to success in just about anything.  I won’t compromise core principles like ‘Women and children first!’, but I will listen when someone tells me I’m messing up or shows me a different path that still leads to a desired goal.

    Yep, core remains the same, the rest can change based on experience, education and the school of hard knocks!
