Judge like you mean it

Glacier National Park fall foliage
The best fall foliage in 50 years. Full of Grizzly Bears too.

i think the human nature of judging people comes from our survival instinct to evaluate predators and prey.

Instinct.

Survival.

We have had to learn, and hone, the ability to quickly and accurately evaluate danger and opportunity.

Why?

Two extremes at opposite ends of a survival spectrum.

We get eaten or we starve.

So when i “judge” a person or situation, it’s in our Neanderthal DNA.

i must judge a room when i speak, or a salesperson when i open our front door.

Judging is a survival technique.

But when it’s done with ill will or unadmirable intent, the question becomes, “Why would you do that?”

Please don't tell me

Emotional judgement

Infinite scrolling from social media has us trained to judge faster.

We move through updates quickly.

Why?

It’s literally the only way to “keep up”.

And we generally judge. You are probably an exception, but most of us make judgements continuously.

Judgement leads to exhaustion.

Stop judging, start recuperating.

Eventually freedom not only pays us a visit, but freedom ends up moving in with us.

But we have to curb social media.

Curb as in probably not partake.

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.

This Might Change Your Life

Don’t base your beliefs on what others fail to do

undaunted Goucher College
Love this, undaunted.

Don’t base your beliefs on what others fail to do.

Hypocrites make for bad role models.

Truth is, we are all hypocrites.

We wouldn’t need peace and contentment if we were perfect.

Strive to base your belief system of what would make our world, and your life, a beautiful place to live.

Authenticity

Everything speaks

Disney Keynote Speaker
Actions speak louder than words.

 

Everything speaks.

We judge ourselves on our intentions.

Others judge us on our behaviors.

Every person is telling a story about what he or she values.

Be careful what you say and do – because, yes, everyone is watching you and judging you.

Dear Boomers

Is it ok to break the law when it suites you?

Lent reading
Yesterday morning (3rd Sunday of Lent) Father John (standing in background) said the bottom left is his favorite reading of all time.

 

Notes on church donation envelope
Had an idea and wrote it on our weekly donation envelope. .think .differently about leadership, engagement, service, connection, improvement.

 

Is it ok to break the law when it suits you?

What?

Right, it sounds like an obscure question, until it isn’t.

Do you drive the speed limit all the time?

Check me if i’m wrong, but speed limits are backed by scientific research to determine the safest speed on a particular stretch of road.

Safest meaning it saves lives and minimizes physical damage.

Yet i don’t know a single person who always drives the speed limit.

So i stopped exceeding the speed limit years ago.

i couldn’t stand my hypocrisy.

And, driving the speed limit reduces stress in unimaginable ways.
