Judgment requires comparison, but comparison does not require judgment.
Comparison is a natural and necessary brain function. It helps us make important distinctions.
Comparison is a quick way to absorb information and it aids decision-making. It’s always looking for safe vs. unsafe experiences.
Comparison is wonderful … until it’s not.
Often comparison leads to judgment. Judgment is another necessary brain function, but we tend to over use it. A lot! For many people, comparison paired with judgment can lead to the "compare-and-despair" trap.
Learn to harness your brain's natural gift of comparison without letting it harm your self-image, productivity, or motivation.
