Ancient communication wisdom: "Men trust their ears less than their eyes."

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Men trust their ears less than their eyes."

Herodotus

Greek Historian, 484BCE-425BCE

Now, 2400 years after Herodotus, psychologists are completing experiments that confirm Herodotus' ancient wisdom...our eyes overrule our ears...truly, we do believe what our eyes see them do more than what our ears hear them say. This applies to their major actions and to their minor body-language signals.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Or, we could just leave things to chance and self-confidence...however, at the very least, that would deprive us of the pleasure associated with the cause and effect between our thoughts (causes) and our achievements (effects).

When you display anger people get defensive. (Wow -Who'd have seen that coming!)

Some say we should not thwart the natural energy captured in the form of anger.

Perhaps, a bit of anger in the workplace is OK. As long as you're OK with a bit of defensiveness.

Don't muddle through the same old problems. Engage Talents and address new, more-lucrative problems.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some people muddle thought the same old business problems - day after day. [Often, 'people problems'.] These people experience stress and confusion but not success.

Some people learn how to solve the basic problems. And, these people graduate to bigger and better problems...and success.

It isn't about who's right or who's wrong. It's about who does and who doesn't have emotions under control - and Why?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Disputes in the work environment often escalate. And, they often spread and affect many people. When you face situations of conflict and dispute remember - It isn't about who's right or who's wrong. It's about who doesn't have emotions under control - and Why?

And, of course, make sure you aren't among those who do not have their emotions under control. 

Emotional disputes do a lot of damage and waste a lot of energy [energy - which, if it wasn't being wasted, could be put to constructive use].

Winners seek solutions and think of better places. Losers agonize over problems and fear uncertainty.

The choice is yours.

Choose fixing the problem over fixing the blame.
