Thank you so much for your interest in The Insight, by Sheba. I hope you enjoyed this week’s blogs about “Judgments.”
Next week’s topic will be “Encouragements”
Friday Review: Happy Reading!
- We make assumptions, focus on our own goals, intentionally see and hear what we want to and lose track of what matters the most. Sometimes we simply forget to put ourselves in the shoes of the other person. But try to step in their shoes and admire the change in mindset as a result of personal growth. You might see things from a different perspective.
- The drawback with common heuristics or common cognitive bias is that they leave room for error. It takes time and effort to make difficult decisions. Go back to basics, be detailed and make a list of pros and cons. Review the facts and get multiple perspectives. Brainstorm with a group, play the devil’s advocate and poke holes in the final decision. Whatever your method is be thorough in your thought process.
- The words we choose to talk about others are as important as the words we choose for ourselves. Take the necessary steps to see the positive in yourself and increase your self-esteem. Only then will you be well-equipped to learn to do the same for others.
- Just as gossip spreads useful information and has protected large groups of people since early humans, so too do judgments. The big deal about sharing our judgments with higher authorities that are skilled and trained to further understand them can be the difference between serving the greater good or not. No, you should not be the one to speak out at all times nor the one who to keeps his or her judgments to themselves. Learn to trust your inner voice and be cognizant of the words you choose when sharing your judgments with a higher authority.
The Insight: When it comes to judgments, it’s best to err on the side of compassionate honesty. Remember to always try to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, be detailed in your thought process, use valuing techniques with yourself as well as with others and remember to share your judgments for the greater good.
Have a wonderful weekend!
