The #1 Waste of Time

The #1 waste of time is unresolved conflict over nothing. Any conflict over nothing is a serious psychological problem caused by the manifestation of cognitive dissonance, defined as inner conflict caused by the contradiction of who you are and what you wish were, and what you do as opposed to what you wish you were doing. The expression of Cognitive Dissonance is all around you. Its in your workplace, on your news feeds, its on your phone, in your texts received, in your email inbox. Cognitive dissonance is contagious. It spreads like a virus. Left unchecked, it will corrupt your soul. Conflict over nothing is compensation for a dull life, an unfulfilled life, doing what you don’t want to do with those who don’t want you to grow. Those who want you to stay the same will fight you if try to grow. Your #1 security issue is protection of your inner circle. Guard it with your heart and soul because your heart and soul are at stake. #muchlove #soulofalifter Blessings and all good things #peace

  • slipinskaWow… you nailed it here Gino!! Thank you for another great post!! #blessed #wisesoul #greatcoach
  • xfitnesswelland@slipinska Thank you, Stephanie. Conflict escalates when solutions are avoided or outright ignored. So many teams are broken because of the unwillingness and incapacity to solve conflict before it grows into a monstrosity. Great teams solve all conflict before it ever gets too far. Blessings and all good things #peace

Blessings & all good things.
