Changing your mind

Home / Decisions / Changing your mind

I used to feel bad about changing my mind. I felt it was a sign of being confused, of not knowing where to go. It was a weakness, and definitely something to avoid.

Changing your mind is only a problem when it’s done without respect for yourself or others. And in most cases, timing is key.

Changing your mind about attending your friend’s birthday party? No problem two weeks ahead of the event. A bit more problematic if it’s only an hour until the party starts, and you’re in charge of baking the cake.

Changing your mind about your pricing strategy? Not a problem if you’re still braistorming and getting your head around your business model. A bit more complicated when you’ve already launched your email campaign.

 Sometimes people aren’t rejecting the changes we’re proposing but how and when we propose them.
