What lessons can we learn?

Whatever we choose to. That comes from the mindset we adopt towards things we hear.

When we move away from judging and evaluating what we are hearing and the person who is saying them, we can learn anything.

Normally, we only hear the judgemental version. Our brain filters what they say to what we think they are saying based on our evaluation. Often, we only hear like continuous noise in our heads, not the word the person is actually saying.

If we listen without evaluation, we hear the actual words. If we choose to have a learner mindset free of judgement, then who knows what we can learn as the opportunities then become limitless.

Just do more of what went right

In the blame, judgement and critical culture we obsess about what went wrong and whose fault it was.

Perhaps it would be better to look at only what went well or was a success and do more of that, and even better next time.

It’s a challenge to change our thinking to that as a good deal of people won’t know what to do when they have no one to blame, shame and judge.
