“‘Switching teams’ requires two things: 1) admitting you are wrong, and then 2) wholeheartedly embracing the new ‘correct’ thinking…. Switching teams requires a unique combination of humility and (oddly enough) confidence.

So my personal differentiator between ‘smart’ and ‘truly brilliant’ is simple: It’s how quickly you are willing to switch teams when you are proven wrong….

Changing your mind isn’t a loss… In fact, it can make you that much better and more effective at what you do. But it takes both guts and wisdom to understand that.” -Steve Sjuggerud
