The whole and its parts

The whole & its parts

Putting Intention first

When we share stories, they are there to entertain, teach or for example invite others to ask for more. While they may be about something important, they also will combine emotions with logic. They are not primarily about logic.

In other situations, however, especially when people argue with one another, the expectation usually is, that logic will persuade others. The hope then becomes that others see that one is right.

But intent trumps logic.

It’s a moment of choice. Are you passing the argument to make others see that you are right? Is it you being right and them being wrong? Or is your intent to create a situation in which others can freely listen to your argument, maybe even undisturbed by their own emotions?

Intent can open the door for logic. Or close it.
