I have a new principal that I’ve been thinking about lately. It’s called the “maybe principal.”
A number of people in my life sometimes try to tell me how things are. They will emphatically state their opinions as if they are fact.
“This is the best lawyer in the state”
“This is the best movie of the year”
“This restaurant is the best in the city”
But I think a lot of these opinions can be answered by simply saying, “maybe.”
Going forward, I am going to work on this detached approach to emphatic opinions. I am going to take the time to investigate for myself and try to determine what I truly believe.
