Time to think…about the assumptions you quickly make

“Everything turns on your assumptions about it, and that’s on you. You can pluck out the hasty judgement at will, and like steering a ship around a point, you will find calm seas, fair weather and a safe port.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.

Take a step back and an extra second or two to think about why you think or believe what you do. Challenge your own evidence. Make it a regular event – not so regular that you find yourself unable to make a decision when one is needed – frequent enough to reassure yourself that you are looking at your life with the clearest perspective possible.
