Wisdom to Live Free from Finance and Thinking

Opinion about to work

Charlie Munger once said –

“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time.
Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one
of the most valuable qualities, you can acquire.
You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.”

— Charlie Munger

“Teach thy tongue to say I do not know, and thou shalt progress.”

“The ability to destroy your ideas rapidly instead of slowly when
the occasion is right is one of the most valuable things.
You have to work hard on it.
Ask yourself what are the arguments on the other side.
It’s bad to have an opinion you’re proud of if you can’t state the
arguments for the other side better than your opponents.
This is a great mental discipline.”

— Charlie Munger

Doing the work forces you to challenge your beliefs because you have to argue from both sides. You become the somewhat impartial judge. What’s on trial is your opinion.
