1 Thing You Can Do This Week To Address An Unruly World


MAKE EVERYTHING A SMALL DEAL

We spend way too much time isolating off the things we think are important, and then build a concrete wall around our minds and emotions, to make sure no one ever infringes on these sacred concepts.

It takes away our flexibility.

It causes us to appear opinionated instead of just blessed with an opinion, and it terminates many relationships which could have bloomed through the seeds of discussion, even if there was disagreement.

What really is a big deal?

If you find you have a list, you can take the number of things you have compiled and subtract them from your potential.

Abrasively showing up to every human encounter with a personal agenda of what you deem to be “the most holy of holies of ideas” is to leave yourself without the ability to learn, and often places you in the role of a fool, when time and knowledge press on, exposing your error.

“It’s no big deal,” because I decided to make it a small deal.

“It’s no big deal,” because ultimately, the way I treat other human beings is the sole criterion for my worth.

Take this week and chop away at all the things you think are big deals and put them to the side as kindling wood—by declaring, “Oh, don’t worry. That’s just a small deal.”

  1. reminds me of the couple celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary – when asked how he explained the success of their relationshlp he said: “it is simple: before we married we decided she would make all the little decisions and I would handle the BIG ones – So, she decided where we would live – where I would work, how many kids to have, and what religion we would believe in – and I? – I decide whether or not to go to World War III
