Does anyone have a good answer to this question? I would consider paying money to get one.
So often I find myself sporting the unattractive accessory known as stubbornness. I want what I want because I think it’s best. There isn’t a chance that the suggestions others bring up will come close to being as smart or efficient as my idea. Ha. I know I’m fooling myself when I think these thoughts. Unfortunately, what I know does not always transfer over into how I act.
I will say that I have identified my stubbornness as an issue that I need to pay attention to. Also, I believe there is a positive equivalent to the word stubborn. This quote from Jeb Bush adequately conveys my feelings on that, “There’s a fine line between stubbornness and the positive side of that, which is dogged determination.” I am actively working on placing myself on the right side of that line.
