It’s very easy to suffer from Assumption Consumption; a deadly illness that consumes and eats away a logical mind. It’s a lethal weapon in the wrong hands! We make thousands of judgements daily, not all of them are correct.
So how can we avoid jumping to conclusions, making judgements and developing Assumption Consumption?
We can start by pausing before we leap into judgement mode.
We can step back and count to ten.
We can ask ourselves could there be an alternative explanation?
Then, with daily practice we can avoid falling into an assumption trap!
Thankfully with time and a little rational thinking we can become aware of our Assumption Consumption and we often find the very opposite of our assumption was the case!
Can you recall an assumption that proved to be wrong? What might have helped you avoid making that assumption? How can you avoid making assumptions in the future? Please share what worked for you. I really enjoy your comments, thanks for calling in to visit!
