“What do you disrespect?”
It’s one of my favorite questions to ask. Of course, I don’t necessarily ask it outright. Instead I listen for clues about what “doesn’t even matter” to the person, or what she “couldn’t care less” about, or what is “so annoying.”
Those are clues for growth. For balance.
Anything you disrespect is probably worth exploring further. That means I probably have a lot to learn from heirlooms, antiques, holidays, parades, MLMs, sports, mosquitos, record-keeping, paperwork, rituals, traditions, institutions, school, emotions, my plans, my body, that rule about turning off cell phones on an airplane, conventional anything, the DMV, the post office...
There are probably hundreds of things. Hundreds of clues for personal growth.
What’s on your list? What do you roll your eyes at? I bet you’ll make some fascinating discoveries.
