Can you hold opposing views in your mind at the same time?

This Sunday’s sparkenation.

F.Scott Fitzgerald, regarded as one of the great American writers of the 20th century, once wrote, “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.”

How intelligent are you?

Your willingness and ability to embrace this kind of maverick thinking is a key to your personal happiness and the success of your business.

It’s also a forerunner to the key factor in all success - shared-view

Without shared-view ultimate success will forever allude you.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.

PS Holding opposing views in your mind at the same time and discovering and maintaining shared-view often means suspending your beliefs (temporarily at least), particularly those of a religious/spiritual or political nature.
