How often do we need to seen people rush to judgement, oftentimes in less than a second, and condemn a person or firm? I’d say almost daily and on social media maybe by the nanosecond.

My thought of the week is don’t jump at everything. Instead pause, get the facts, think about the situation, weigh the appropriate options to react and only then take action. We have to train ourselves to not rush to judgement and being in perpetual “jump mode”. We all say that that smart and productive people evolve by learning from the past. How can you achieve this if you become prosecutor, judge and jury and do so in the blink of an eye?

Take stock of how you can calm down your own rush to judgment trigger? Doing so will pay big dividends.
