Inflexibility limits. Be flexible.

Why can inflexibility be a bad thing?

It...

...prevents you from seeing all sides of a problem.

...can keep you from developing understanding.

...can limit the ability to empathize.

...inhibits learning.

...limits growth.

...can cause damage to critical joints.

...can cause severe emotional reactions.

...keeps you thinking in a linear manner.

...prevents you from adapting on the fly.

...can reinforce bad habits.

...limits perception.

I still struggle at times with being inflexible. Stepping back to see the bigger picture can help keep a situation in perspective.
