Don’t judge a book by its cover

  • By Alan Knott-Craig

You meet a new person. Potential employee/shareholder/partner.

 

Black, white, indian, overweight, underweight, ugly, beautiful, smiley, frowny, badly dressed, whatever.

 

Your first impression has a direct line to your brain, and you automatically form a judgement.

 

Overweight? Must be lazy.

 

Frowny? Must be unfriendly.

 

Badly dressed? Must be sloppy.

 

And so you discount that person before before he/she has had a chance to open up.

 

And you potentially miss a star.

 

Rather don’t.

 

Ignore that first message to your brain.

 

Keep an open mind, enjoy meeting a new person.

 

Who knows, maybe it’s a diamond covered in coal.

 

If you don’t scratch the coal you’ll never find the diamond.

 

If you don’t keep an open mind you’ll never scratch the coal.

 

Don’t judge a book by its cover.
