Hmm… That’s Interesting

Filed under: Evolution — Peter Nikolaidis @ 10:17 am

I get frustrated… a lot. Not genuinely angry, mind you, but suffice to say people often do things that tick me off. For the next 30 days, I will take a different approach. Instead of getting angry or frustrated immediately, I will make my best effort to say “hmm, that’s interesting,” and understand what led to my frustration, as well as the other person’s actions.

As I write this, I see that this is a version of Stephen Covey’s “seek first to understand” habit.

And, I am now typing this on my iPhone 4S, rather than dictating to Siri, who has very interestingly stopped processing my input.

Hmm… That’s interesting. Off to a good start!
