The other day I heard the expression “independent intellect”. To me independent intellect is when someone is willing to have original thoughts and not necessarily just follow what others say.
Are you willing to do things based on what the facts show and not based on other peoples interpretations of the facts?
Are you willing to zig when everyone else says to zag?
Are you willing to be the contrarian not just for the sake of being it but rather because it’s sometimes the right thing to do.
Independent intellect is something we should all strive for.
Have a great day!
