Stop Extrapolating Your Perceptions
You’ve heard it before, but seriously: Don’t jump to conclusions. Focus more on your first impression and less on what everything “means.”
I bet that you’re extrapolating your perceptions all the time. Let me give you a few examples and tell whether I’m wrong.
- “House prices will probably keep increasing.”
- “That person will never change.”
- “My business will keep growing.”
- “I will never learn from my mistakes.”
- “He doesn’t like me.”
We often have these type of thoughts multiple times a day. The root of this problem is our quick judgment.
