Most of us go about our day, not thinking about what effect we have on others. We think about how other people influence us, how we feel in their presence, how they ruin our day, how they ask us for help, how they make us feel great or good about ourselves, how they make our day. We don’t stop, take a moment and put ourselves in their shoes and think about how we make them feel!
And yet, we judge them for doing things their way. We think we would do things differently, had we been in their situation.
How do you know how you would act unless you are in the situation?
In other words, the context people find themselves in, shape their behavior.
