Episode 305: I Made a Mistake

We, as humans, are subject to our own biases. Even the most self-aware individual can limit themselves by unconsciously acting on pre-conceived stereotypes or judgments. Biases are unfortunately built into society and our psychological nature; how do we keep them from turning into mistakes?

In this episode, Phil recounts and analyzes an eye-opening experience that brought him back to a lesson most of us learned in grade school: don’t to judge a book by its cover. Although we all know this statement to be true, our actions and thought-processes do not always mirror our wisdom. Biases based on appearance can limit our capacity to grow our influence and expand our knowledge base. Don’t fall into this trap; make it your mission today and everyday to hold yourself accountable for the labels you place on others.
