We have different opinions about what’s most important, and it is easy to think everyone thinks the same way.
Do you always stay at work to finish a project if your boss asks…even if you had plans to take your kids to a ball game?
Or do you always put family first? Or friends first? Or play first, or money first, etc.
The thing is, each of us has a different set of priorities. If we don’t talk about and share, then we may get frustrated with those we interact regularly because we don’t understand why they always put X, Y, or Z first.
What if we started explaining our decisions…starting with explaining to ourselves!
