Want to make a meaningful impact? Small acts make a big difference on our journey to #beEvenBetter
What energizes you as you start the work day? How can we be more purposeful and intentional to rev up our engines?
How often do we make things bigger than they are, missing the joy of the moment? Maybe, we just need some more bowls…
This funny incident does provide us some insights into how quick we can be to make assumptions and establish opinions with little information. Our brains are programmed to be lazy and use our prior experiences to make quick easy decisions. It’s when we take our assumptions, withhold a quick decision and test those assumptions against more information or contrary information that we make better decisions. How often do we take a position on a matter that really if we simply looked at the other side of the coin, it’s not really a big deal.
We have so many choices in how we respond to each other. But it’s almost always a positive experience to explore new ideas a little further. You make an investment in both yourself and the person who cares enough to share an idea with you.
Making wise choices in our reactions leads to better outcomes, better memories, stronger influence and most of all, better relationships.
