“Thinking is difficult; this is why most people judge.”
In a world where we can swipe through friends’ messages with less effort than erasing a whiteboard, taking the time to carefully consider our responses to people seems more expensive than ever. Time is money, effort is energy, and immediacy is more important than accuracy.
This is why quick judgments (that’s stupid, this is a waste of time, she’s wrong, he’s evil, you’re conservative, you’re liberal, etc) are so prevalent.
Today—just today—let’s try some careful consideration before we judge everyone and everything around us.
Who knows? Maybe we’ll find out we’re not always right.
