FROM BEARS (Barry Neil Kaufman): Foundational Principle #4, Option Process (what we teach in our programs at the Option Institute). BEING NON-JUDGMENTAL IS POWERFUL, NOT PASSIVE. Most of us see making judgments ("that's terrible," "he's mean") as critical to our moral compass and our ability to take decision action. Actually, it often leads to discomfort, anger, clouded perceptions and muddled decision-making. Drop judgments, clear the fog!
