Replace Judgment with Curiosity

3d people - man, person with magnifying glass looking at Earth

{{expand}}I vividly recall the day in August 1995 that I discovered that my brain was a voting machine – constantly judging whether something was good or bad, right or wrong, whether I liked it or didn’t, or whether I agreed or disagreed with a particular point of view. This polarized thinking didn’t leave any room for nuances in my thinking or graciousness in my behavior with those on the other side of an issue. Gradually I came to appreciate “shades of gray”, and the value of being curious about other people’s perspectives. I no longer imagine that my way of achieving results is the only way, and I try to help people discover what’s possible instead of leading them in a direction that I think they should go.
