Do you suffer from the righting reflex?
The righting reflex was the term coined by Miller and Rollnick in Motivational Interviewing to describe our need or desire to make things right.
Even if you are right, you might be wrong. Not every problem needs to be solved. On many occasions people are more interested in you hearing their story rather than granting their request and you will never hear their story if you leap ahead to making it right for them.
This week, stop making right turns.
No, I am not talking about driving. I am talking about trying to make everything right. Can you entertain the notion that life is not a problem to be solved but rather an experience to be lived.
If this were your last day, would you die happy today?
