I tell students to listen for that judging reaction; not to suspend or supress judgement, but to learn how to feel yourself judging, and to realize that is a data point right there - if you are judging it's because you are noticing something other than what you expect and that's an opportunity to look deeper and ask why.

great post...one thought: the opposite of compassion is indifference or apathy, but doesn't seem to be judgement :-)...perhaps a small but important nuance.


I disagree with your assertion that indifference, not judgement, is the opposite of compassion. Why?

For this small but important nuance: compassion and judgement are both active ways of being. Indifference and apathy are about inaction. As Steve noted above, judging takes energy, and what's important to innovation is pointing that energy toward a constructive end.
