Ep173: Assumptions at The Drive-Thru Window

28 minutes

Ever written a whole story based on a flash of behaviour from someone else? In a twist of irony, in this episode, we explore the process of writing a story about someone else writing a story about us! 

Why is that important for business? 

So much of our miscommunications in business and in life are based on these imagined stories based on other people’s behaviours. It is much like how conspiracy theories are built – we emotionally organize things that don’t make sense. But when we respond this way, we are forgetting the question mark; we are forgetting to be curious. We skip past all of the unknowns and jump right to certainty. And often, we are filling in the storyline with our own fears. 

When you lose the question mark, you lose a great deal of your ability to understand. 

There is great power in writing your own story, but with that power comes great responsibility.
