Last weekend my husband trod on a hot coal beside the barbecue. The coal had turned grey, so he assumed it was cool - it wasn't! And he also wasn't wearing any shoes...
The assumptions we make can have a big impact on our lives and the course it takes. We think we know things and we don't make time to check - and this can mean we discount opportunities and miss out.
We assume we know what people want from us, we assume we know what exists and doesn't exist, we assume we know what is true.
Sometimes it's good to slow down to speed up. Next time you think you know something and want to rush forward, make a pause. Take a moment to check out the facts, and notice the difference it makes.
