Do we often forget to see the larger picture?Many times we do things based our sense of right or wrong, based on the situation, based on our obligations and commitment at work. Similarly we argue or debate or get angered for certain issues which we realize later on that it was trivial.
We argue with the rickshaw driver if he doesn't give back small change, if he refuses our trip, the same with cabs who do surge pricing or cancel bookings. At work, there may be many issues that we are not comfortable and we decide to take it head on and argue with colleagues or supervisors with whom we have to keep working. When the cashier at the checkout counter does not acknowledge us when we are in a hurry to leave, we exchange a few harsh words.
In all this we forget that we leave unhappy, our mood becomes foul and the rest of day becomes unpleasant. Sometimes unknown to us, we make our own lives at work or home difficult because we focus of small issues and forget the larger picture. Do you agree?
