“Somewhere it is written that parents who are critical of other people’s children and publicly admit they can do better are asking for it.” — Erma Bombeck
This Erma Bombeck quote got me thinking about how judgmental we all are.
What amazes me is how we do not see this trait in ourselves — we only get angry about it in others. Think about the last time you said or thought, “That person is so judgmental.” What is that saying about you? Yep, you are judging them for the way they are judging. And the cycle goes on and on.
One of my passions to help people live with purpose and have a positive, joy-filled life. Once leaders discover judgment and negativity in their lives, they’re the first things they want to tackle — in themselves, their leadership team, and their organization.
Next time, we will explore the root cause of judgment and ways we can avoid being critical, crank, and chronically negative.
So, how judgmental are you? And would you like to work on being more joyful?
