Changing your mind

a Biblical thought...
Staying with it—that's what God requires. Stay with it to the end. You won't be sorry, and you'll be saved. (Matt 24:13)

a Book thought...
If we do not let go, we make prisoners of ourselves. (p216 MacKenzie)
a Dave thought...
Two days ago, the chairman of India's largest domestic carrier announced that soaring fuel prices and slowing global growth had left the company with no choice but to eliminate 1,900 jobs.
Then he changed his mind.
"The management will have to understand sometimes in a family there are disagreements, but the father of the family decides," said Naresh Goyal, chairman of
Jet Airways, apparently referring to himself.
At a news conference around midnight Thursday, Goyal apologized for the "agony" the firings had caused and denied that mounting political pressure had forced the airline to reverse its decision.

"This was the most emotional day in my life. My daughter is 19 years old. They are 20 or so," Goyal said of the employees. "I cannot stand to see their trauma."

It is good to see there is some sensitive chairman's in the world. Well done Goyal for having the courage to change your mind.

Just a thought.
