Pointing Out Errors Isn't Very Helpful

"It is one thing to show a man that he is in error,

and another to put him in possession of truth."

John Locke

Too often we are eager to point out the mistakes others make in their lives. It is more useful to share information to help someone find their truth. No one has all the answers, and mistakes are only an opportunity for additional learning.

This week: When you notice an error, think about how you can help the person find their truth from the experience. Often that doesn't involve telling him or her what they have done wrong, but it might mean pointing out that there are other ways to approach the task.
