Be careful when trying to establish a fact from a lack of evidence. From a book I’m listening to:“Unless the inquiry has been so exhaustive to explore every possibility, the lack of evidence should never be used to grant a statement of fact. Unlikelihood, certainly, but no more. A prematurely assumed fact blocks further inquiry.” – Dawn of Wonder: The Wakening, Jonathan Renshaw
Jumping to conclusions is a method of forming facts in our minds; a self-constructed anchor point from which judgement springs forth. Most often; however, we lack the full set of data as we’ve not explored every possibility and we plow forward with much destruction.
This is important to understand whether you’re raising children or building a business and is a key component to successful conflict resolution.
