I was on the phone with a client when she mentioned she uses a personal constitution to guide her life. She wrote the document 25 years ago and has never changed it.
She’s not very happy either.
Yes, by definition, a Constitution never changes. But that didn’t stop me from asking if she had ever considered amending her Constitution.
Let me be clear –
Your most important beliefs and core values should not change easily or quickly. Yet, as you grow wiser, you should be willing to make adjustments based on your past experiences.
Over time, everybody updates their core belief system. It’s best to make it a conscious rather than an unconscious decision.
