Focus on One Issue at a Time!

How many times have you gone to someone to deal with an offense only to not be able to deal with the issue at hand. The reason you cannot deal with the imminent issue is you are unable to focus on “one” issue at a time. Again, as stated in an earlier blog, instead of trying to bring resolution to the issues we face, many of us are more concerned about winning our argument than creating win/win situations for the parties involved. Thus, we posit our case by bring up every offense that comes to mind. Friends, this approach is counter-productive! Here is a word from Lifeskills that I believe will help us in this area.

 

“When we are arguing with someone significant in our life, it can be difficult to resist the urge to bring all of that person's shortcomings into the current argument. However, when we are attempting to resolve conflict, it is imperative that we stick to one issue at a time. If we begin to drag other issues in, it will inevitably take the focus off of the issue at hand, and nothing will be resolved.” 

 

Friends, let’s practice making a “conscious effort to stay on point and resolve one issue at a time!”
