“A relentless barrage of ‘why’s’ is the best way to prepare your mind to pierce the clouded veil of thinking caused by the status quo. Use it often.” Shigeo Shingo

“‘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

“Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.” -Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

“There are two basic mindsets that people have about their talents, their abilities, and their smarts. One mindset leads to success. The other leads to being stuck in the rat race, to stagnating in your life while others succeed. Your response to failure or to seemingly insurmountable obstacles will tell you which dominates your thinking.

There is power in what you believe about yourself.”

-Robert Kiyosaki
