Can You Spot the Mistake?

It has been a great winter as far as warm temperatures this year in Winnipeg. Record breaking temps. I am not complaining but a warm winter in Winnipeg brings a few challenges. My snowmobile has been sitting an awful lot this year. Sometimes on a sunny day in the late afternoon you cannot see anything around you. The spray from the roads coats your windows and you can't see anything beside you. Get a car wash and 15 minutes later same problem.

I came across this article - How To Know When You Are Wrong
Click on the link to read it.
A key point that the writer makes is we often our blind to our own mistakes. The more invested we are in something the less likely we are truly able to see what others see. Our mistakes!
If you are in an argument and you are looking for a resolution these are four things that you should keep in mind.
1. Find the common denominator – If you are having the same argument with many people the problem is you.
2. Look at the situations potential outcomes.
3. Don’t Try to Change Someone Else’s Behaviour – Ask anyone who is married if this works.
4. Consult the Facts – I know sometimes the facts get in the way of good argument.
One of the hardest things we all have to do is to confront the fact that we have been and will be wrong.
