What’s your stance?



I know friends who will not change their opinions no matter what. Even in the face of new information. Sometimes, these people forget that an opinion about something isn't the same as holding on to principles. 

As my friend Derek Sivers said here in his article “Loving What I Used to Hate”, “We don't need to preserve our first opinions as if they are our pure, untarnished, true nature. They're often just ignorance or inexperience.”

The principle of not changing your opinion even when faced with new information should be questioned.
