Take One Minute

Today, put aside one minute.

During that minute, put yourself in someone else's shoes. Pick someone you've had a disagreement with recently, or whom you've scorned or scoffed at. 

Now close your eyes and try to imagine what reasons would motivate them to take the position they did that upset you, or that landed them in the place you're scorning. 

Don't be defensive about this. Honestly try and imagine what was motivating them. Spend a minute imagining what you would do in that situation.

Okay. And now, when you're finished, tell me: did it make any difference to how you feel or what you think?
