Learning How to Let Go

In the last 45 seconds of the 10 minute introduction podcast the professor briefly spoke about those who hold beliefs tightly and how this course may be difficult for such students.
The resonating points in only a matter of seconds:
The willingness to be wrong.
Letting go of an idea.
Releasing an idea that has had it's day and move away from it or out of the way of another idea.
This is quite a lot to think about.
Thank you.

Well Spoken

Most classroom lectures are as boring as they sound but Professor Reihman does a great job! He is quick to make his points, open your mind, and state the facts in a way introductory students will understand complex issues. Nice job Prof :)
