Blind Spots

“Friendship is just giving each other the same advice back and forth, and no one taking it”, read a meme on my Instagram feed!

That got me thinking: We all have cognitive biases and blind spots, that we may or may not be aware of, and often refuse to acknowledge.

Unless we develop an awareness of these, there is no way to overcome their limitations. And, these limitations affect day to day decision-making in all critical matters.

What are some of your blind spots, and what are you doing about them?

When is the last time you reached out to a close family member or friend – one that was objective enough to point out your biases, and help you realize what you’re missing?
