Ask Yourself The Critical Question
Two Sunday’s ago I pointed to The Question No One Asks…But Should by Kevin A. Thompson. That post has really stuck with me.
The question Kevin said we should ask ourselves is “Is there anything in my life which might blind me from making a good decision?”
This is HUGE!
For myself, I would phrase it a bit differently: “What in my life is keeping me from making a good decision?” I assume there is almost always something messing with my ability to see clearly and make the best decision. Blindspots are common and we don’t tend to see them because they are, well, blind spots.
Checking your blind spots before you make a decision is like checking your blind spot on the highway before you change lanes. If you fail to do it often enough you’re going to end up in an ugly situation!
