We have a strong tendency to go along with the status quo or default option. In fact, in the book I’m reading, “Nudge” writes about how whatever the default choices are, many people stick with them.
How can we harness this power for good? Interestingly enough, what comes to my mind is Toastmasters. For those who are not familiar, it’s a super positive public speaking practice club. For example, every time anyone says anything, everyone always claps. Sound silly, but it’s effective. I’ve seen myself how in just a matter of months, people make leaps and bound in their speech-giving abilities.
So that made me wonder. What if we trained ourselves to the point that the status quo response was praise? Sure some instances deserve condemnation, but on an average day don’t we encounter the above-average amount of good? As such, shouldn’t our default response match the reality? And if we did that, wouldn’t people around us, with our encouragement, become more exceptional?
