Effecting change and being misunderstood

Much of our ability to effect change in the long run lies in our ability to consistently do two sets of things – i) acknowledging and then accepting our missteps and ii) making peace with being temporarily (sometimes permanently) misunderstood.

The first ensures we have the mental and emotional agility to adapt to the dynamics of the situation we’re dealing with.

The second, on the other hand, helps us to not lose heart.
