The less he understands something, the more firmly he believes in it. Wilhelm Reich, psychoanalyst
We are trying to finalize approval for an Micro CCRC on our island. This is a facility for seniors with independent living apartments, assisted living, and memory care. We are an island of retirees and how wonderful it would be to stay in the environment we know as we age. There is opposition, of course, and most of it seems to stem from mis-information that is then promoted on yard signs and by word of mouth.
Reich’s quote about understanding less and being more adamant about a decision seems to be running rampant lately. I support those who speak out and speak up on any topic. However, being informed and knowing the facts is paramount whether the subject is a senior living facility on a small island or climate change affecting the globe.
Affirmation: I am informed.
Coaching questions: What are you championing? How do you stay informed? How do you separate fact from fiction? If there is something you feel passionate about? Get informed then get busy.
