Find a balance

There needs to be a balance between adapting and committing.

Committing–and concrete thinking–might be what’s needed in a strictly controlled environment where no new information is coming in. But, change is inevitable.
The visionary, abstract thinking–the adaptive, who sees the big picture, will be able to apply learned lessons, respond to change, and stay relevant.

Why am I doing this?  Ask yourself why until you understand your actions and decide how to reach your goal.

The downsides to always adapting, always flexible, always changing gears could lead to a lack of direction and commitment. In turn, a lack of direction could lead to failure.

In the last decades, organizations are increasingly becoming more global, complex, and demanding of workers’ time. In the always-on, always-connected work environment, boundaries are overlapping and combining. 

If you’re always keeping your options open, you’re constantly second-guessing yourself and that makes you unhappy.

It is probably better to say "this might work" when you start because you’ll be much more alert to take in signals, new information, tweak it, adjust it, adapt, or maybe just stop.
