2 + 2 = 5

Yes 2 + 2 = 5Pulling out hair

Really 2 + 2 = 5

Is it possible for me to convince you that 2 + 2 = 5 ???

 

Has this ever happened to you? You believe you are correct in a situation but, the person you are speaking with just doesn't get it? They insist that they are correct and 2 + 2 = 5 !! No matter how much you speak, jump up and down or grab your hair....they still believe the answer is 5 !

 

In moments like this I take a deep breath and reflect on Steven Covey's 5th Habit of his 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

 

Seek First to Understand. Then to be Understood.

 

You only need to truly listen to the other person and try to understand why it is that they believe 2 + 2 = 5... Listen to what they have to say....can you truly understand where they are coming from. After listening......really listening to them If you still believe that 2 + 2 doesn't = 5, now you can back in to the answer and show them how you believe 2 + 2 = 4 !!

Steven Covey was a remarkable person. If you have never read or listened to the '7 Habits of Highly Effective People'......You Should! It is a life changing event! One that you will consistently find yourself drawing upon in every aspect of your life.

He was a blessing to this world and I am so happy that I was able to personally meet him many years ago.

I like to "sharpen my saw" and use it on the 2 plus 2= 5 crowd.

Paige, I have a family member that's like that. I could tell him the sky is blue or the grass is green and he'd still try to argue it. No matter what.
