My top 10 highlights as I am reading Think Again by Adam Grant

This book is a must-read.

I will explain the quotes in future lists through my own world views.

    1. "The accelerating pace of change means that we need to question our beliefs more readily than ever before"

    2. "The purpose of learning isn't to affirm our beliefs; it's to evolve our beliefs."

    3. "You can be confident in your ability to achieve a goal in the future while maintaining the humility to question whether you have the right tools in the present."

    4. "Having faith in our capability while appreciating that we may not have the right solutions or even be addressing the right problem."

    5. "I have learned that two kinds of detachments are especially useful: detaching your present from your past and detaching your opinions from your identity."

    6. "Who you are should be a question of what you value, not what you believe."

    7. "We learn more from people who challenge our thought process than those who affirm our conclusion."

    8. "Being reasonable literally means that we can be reasoned with, that we're open to evolving our views in light of logic and data."

    9. "We don't have to convince them we are right-we just need to open their minds to the possibility that they might be wrong."

    10. "As a general rule, it's those with greater power who need to do more of the rethinking, both because they're more likely to privilege their own perspective and because their perspectives are more likely to go unquestioned."
