I am visiting my son who is a huge football fan. In addition to watching a few games, having red zone (where you see every team as they get close to scoring a touchdown), and he’s not doing so well in his fantasy football league – fertile soil for the stealth “negative bias” to grow.
I am watching our team play. I have just finished watching the week 6 webinar on ‘Negative Bias” and the 7-day Diet. I am being very mindful and doing really well as I re-frame my responses to sound very neutral in my comments, “That’s an interesting call,” which really meant – what idiot calls a pass on 2nd a 1 with two minutes to go in the game and you need a touchdown to tie?
By the end of the game, I had ‘started the diet’ over more times than I could count. In fact, at one point I just gave myself permission to start over after the game.
This is going to be very interesting and “with a sense of humor,” very enlightening.
