We all have different ways of looking at things. Different opinions. Ideas. Judgements. But who is right? Yes I know, I know. You’re saying to yourself; ‘Georgia – You are!’. But aside from me I’m talking about 😉
Dr. Aaron Dweck would call these our ‘cognitive distortions’. In simple terms, how we distort data, situations or people based on how we are wired. Have you ever wondered what skews your thinking compared to someone else? Well I did. A lot. I saw our opinions and perspectives as the things that we get wedded to. Which in turn, turns conversations, decisions and even relationships to go south.
I reckon we should become more aware of these distortions. That I call; ‘The Board of Directors’ that live in our head. So we can the understand when they help us or hinder us.
If you want to understand these Board of Directors and see what you can do to navigate them better then you’ll love our ’Booster Shot’ next Friday at 12pm. Register here and I’ll see you then!
