To make a wise decision at every moment in life can be difficult, especially when you've already made one or more erroneous decisions in the past. Expert advice is always recommended when you're unable to choose the right option, while there are certain times in your life when you inadvertently put things to comparison and don't make any sense.
Below are 4 stupid things people waste their time comparing:
Children's Mark sheet
It's quite common in the Indian society for parents to compare their children with other children in their neighborhood or with their cousins. Parents do say different things to their children inadvertently and end up leaving bad impressions on their children's mind. Such children start developing negative thoughts in their mind about themselves or their parents.
"Just look at him/her; he/she is much better than you!"
"Why can't you perform better than Sharma Ji's son?"
"What can't you just be like him/her?"
Well, a comparison could be a counter-productive step for a marketing company while it can be debasing for children. They don't understand things that way, so such an attitude towards them can be painful. Instead of negative criticism, show the sense of motivation to them, learn to appreciate their efforts, and encourage them for better results in the future.
Salary appraisals bring joy to some while sadness to others. Some become happy because others didn't get what they expected while some become sad because they expected more than what they got. Comparing your salary hike with that of others in your team is a human nature. We agree on that with you. However, why waste your time thinking after getting what you were entitled to get.
Working at different levels in various organizations, individuals like us give our best efforts not only to stand out in our respective teams but also to make the organization grow in every way possible. It's just that one put more of their efforts that counted than you probably did.
Boyfriend/Girlfriend's Dressing Sense
We live in a modern society and we all have relationships. Yes, we do. We do things, such as wear good clothes to look good and impress our partners or friends. You got to agree with that. While there are times when we exchange a glance with a girl/boy in a public place and find him/her good looking because of the outfit. We can't restrain ourselves and comment on our partner's dressing sense, hurting them inadvertently.
Well, things could be addressed in a better and more convincing manner, i.e. without making him/her realize that you do not like the outfit he/she has worn.
Newborn babies to their parents
You must have noticed people in your family or friends comparing newborn babies with their parents. Like really? How can someone just look at a newborn baby and tell that he/she looks similar to his/her parents? Do these people really have to do that? We leave that to their wisdom and really appreciate their efforts.
So now you know things that you must not waste your time comparing, here's what you must compare.
What to Compare?
When it comes to making the most valuable decision in our life, we take a good amount of time to ensure that we don't make a wrong decision in hurry. However, other than comparing our children with those of our relatives/friends, we need to think twice because such a decision could lead to disappointment if taken in a hurry.
