JUXTAPOSING OTHERS’ MISTAKES WITH OUR QUESTIONS REGARDING THEIR ERRONEOUS THINKING (or with better, or correct answers) IS MORE POWERFUL FOR EFFECTING CHANGE IN THAT PERSON THAN DELIVERING BROWBEATINGS OR LENGTHY EXPLANATIONS.

THE SMALLEST PROJECTS OR TASKS WILL TAKE AN EVER INCREASING AMOUNT OF TIME, BOTH MENTALLY AND IN REALITY, DUE TO OUR: PERFECTIONISM, ANXIETIES, FEAR OF MAKING MISTAKES, AND DUE TO OUR DISTRACTIBLITIES.

ALL OF US, REPEATEDLY, BELIEVE THAT OUR OWN HISTORY OF MISTAKES, AND THE LESSONS AVAILABLE TO US FROM OTHERS’ MISTAKES, DO NOT APPLY NOW TO US, SINCE, “THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT.”

EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY, PEOPLE ARE SCRAMBLING TO FIGURE THINGS OUT FOR THEMSELVES. GIVE THEM ROOM TO STUMBLE, EVEN IF THEY END UP LANDING ON YOU. HELP CUSHION THEIR FALL. THE UNSTATED AGREEMENT IS THAT THEY WILL DO THE SAME FOR YOU OR THEY WILL PAY IT FORWARD TO OTHERS.

WISDOM IS, IN PART, KNOWING WHAT TO DO, WHEN TO DO IT, WHEN NOT TO DO IT, AND HOW TO DO IT CORRECTLY, THE FIRST TIME. EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT IS WHEN WISDOM IS THE ABILITY TO RECOGNIZE AND CORRECT OUR OWN MISTAKES, SOONER AND FASTER.
