It’s extremely difficult to give up being right. It’s even harder to do if you don’t have any other approach to the problems life throws at you. Acting effectively is a more useful approach to life rather than being right. By shifting your perspective from “fair” to caring more about things “working out better” a lot of conflicts that seemed impossible suddenly become much more simple. This skill is more than a different way of acting. It is a different life philosophy that can raise you above a significant amount of the the headaches of life.
