What if you assumed every interaction was for the long term? How would that affect your actions?
That guy who cut you up in his car. That lady that won’t move out of the way on the pavement. That annoying person at work in a different department.
An assumption of a one-time interaction gets you off the hook. It allows you to vent from a place of emotion as there are few consequences.
What if the guy in the car was your boss? What if that lady was your grandma? The annoying person at work the one person you need to unlock a new project?
“If you ran into an asshole in morning, you ran into an asshole. If you run into assholes all day, you’re the asshole” ~ Fictional character Raylan Givens in TV series Justified – from Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss
