#88 Would you rather be right or would you rather be peaceful?

“If you want to be a more peaceful person, you must understand that being right is almost never more important than allowing yourself to be happy.” The Dalai Lama.  In a class I took on opinion polling as part of a journalism degree, I learned that you can only change someone’s mind who is undecided.  Once they’ve made up their mind, arguing with them is a waste of time.  

Good luck keeping your cool during this hotly contested election.

About sand1

When I was young, I made a lot of bad choices. The only way I knew to dig myself and my family out was to go to the library, always hoping that the next book I read would change my life and thankfully, often many of them did. Out of gratitude for the happy life I have now, I decided to share what I have learned, and continue to learn. I hope that Tuesday Tips helps you as much as they have helped and continue to help me.
