An open mind:
- Has blind spots, understanding it can’t possibly have all the answers
- Recognises it must actively seek feedback to uncover these blindspots
- Knows that an effective way to seek said feedback is to ask smart questions of a diverse range of people
- Is comfortable changing its mind, based on the above
In short: an open mind is one that leads with humility, genuine curiosity and a desire to learn.
An open mind is a choice and should be practised.
You might consider: who are the people that can offer you insights and what questions will you ask them?
