Pearl of Wisdom #13
Not everyone does things in the same way that you do
Don’t you just love it when someone says, “I wouldn’t have done it like that…” just AFTER you finish doing a task?
You often see it in a working environment; when one employee tries to explain something to another. It seems a simple and straightforward task to the person that knows, and they just can’t understand why it’s such a mystery to the one learning.
The truth is that we are all different. What I find easy, you may find hard; and vice versa. Likewise, you may need to explain something to me several times before I get it, but someone else may grasp it on the first attempt.
Is one better than the other? No – it’s just different.
We need to understand and consciously remember that not everyone is like us. It is extremely arrogant to look down on someone else who can’t do what we can. If you look hard enough, there will certainly be things they can do that you cannot.
We must stop judging one another, and learn to work with each other. We all have different strengths and weaknesses, and God put us together so we can work together – not against each other.
Be patient with other people this week, as they will no doubt have to be patient with you!
