People who are right a lot of the times—make decisions differently from everyone else.
People who get it right a lot of times were people who often changes their minds.
It’s healthy to have an idea tomorrow that contradicted your idea today.
In fact, it’s necessary sometimes.

The smartest people are always revising their knowledge.
And reconsidering a problem they had already solved.
How you can make more right decisions than wrong ones:
Be open to new points of views
Constantly search for new information
Grasp new ideas
Contradict and challenge your own way of thinking.
Smart people who are right a lot change their minds—a lot!
People who make the wrong decisions a lot always do these:
Support only details that accept their point or view
Have a huge ego
Can’t see the bigger picture from multiple angles.
This doesn’t mean you become indecisive.
It simply means you will always analyze new data.
And you revisit your own thoughts and beliefs—to challenge your thesis.
According to CEO Tim Cook at Apple, Steve Jobs would change his mind often:
“Steve would flip on something so fast that you would forget that he was the one taking the 180 degree polar opposite position the day before. I saw it daily. This is a gift, because things do change, and it takes courage to change.”
