Let your love be stronger than your hate or anger. Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break. * H G Wells
How often are we faced with the challenge of what battle to fight and what to let pass to the keeper? Why is it that some people have to win regardless of the sense of doing so and regardless of the negative impact on business, on others and on themselves? This behaviour fascinates me and we all see this within our organisations. So what drives this behaviour?
From my seat;
It is easy I guess to judge, we have all been guilty of this behaviour. Is it a sign of maturity, leadership development, commonsense and experience that we learn to pick our battles? In essence to compromise and ‘bend a little’. At times, turn the other cheek.
Life is so much more satisfying and enriching when we learn this lesson. Pick our battles and don't stress over what we can't control or isn't worth worrying about.
