S:0562 Quote: Reality

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

 

“It doesn t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn t matter how smart you are. If it doesn t agree with experiment [or reality or what is ], it s wrong.”

Richard P. Feynman – Physicist and 1965 Nobel Laureate

 

Coaching Point: Have you ever known someone who made an assumption and then, when the assumption proved to be incorrect, when reality did not agree with their assumption, they were unable to change? It s easy to become attached to an idea and need to be right. What technique or process do you use to catch yourself doing this?
