Your point of view is only temporary

Jeff Bezos, offering some advice to the 37signals team:

(…) the smartest people are constantly revising their understanding, reconsidering a problem they thought they’d already solved. They’re open to new points of view, new information, new ideas, contradictions, and challenges to their own way of thinking.

Being open-minded and willing to re-discuss and re-visit things you already implemented. For the sake of getting better, of being better and improving your next solutions.

this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a well formed point of view, but it means you should consider your point of view as temporary.

and therefore, you have to revisit your premises.
