Observing your mind as you eavesdrop on a stranger’s conversation is a fascinating experience.
You get the opportunity to observe your biases in real-time as your mind tries to complete a story with limited pieces of information.
A fun exercise, is to write the assumptions as they pop up so you can have a reminder of the wrong assumptions you made along the way.
It’s helpful to remind ourselves how quickly we sometimes hop to conclusions. This will not only help us make better #decisions, but to be more forgiving and graceful to others when they falter too.
