Hey Reasonable Dose Readers!
I’m very interested in WHAT affects us all socially. What’s most intriguing to me is gray areas!
Eating your vegetables won’t be anything I discuss. We all can agree that that’s healthy and a good idea. Eating ONLY vegetables IS something that I’d like to discuss with you.
Are you already considering what your position is on eating ONLY veggies? Some of you are vegans or vegetarians, some of you are not and think you would never be! That’s fine but I’ve gone vegan for a week and vegetarian for much longer. I also eat meat and have an interesting perspective that I’d like to discuss with you.
If you KNOW there is a definite RIGHT and WRONG side of this issue this might not be the blog for you. If you THINK there is a definite RIGHT and WRONG here and you’d like to TREAD Lightly and learn more please, stick around. I think you’ll enjoy this community.
What is T.R.E.A.D. Lightly? It sounds Reasonable….
- T – TELL your position. (Here is what I think!)
- R – REAFFIRM your position. (I knew I was right! I was just checking!)
- E – EXPLORE your position. (Am I missing anything?)
- A – ALTER your position. (Whoa. Never in a million years!)
- D – DISCOVER your position. (Oh, that’s what I think! I had no idea!)
Whenever I do something like this I find that my opinions may change SEVERAL times on an issue that I thought I was totally sold on to begin with.
I want us to have a deeper conviction for what we already think is right, or have totally changed our perspectives in the end. We will also check out some STATS and see what those look like with whatever we decide to talk about and connect some dots in society today.
I’ll finally as you to take some kind of action. I don’t want this to be a great place to talk, vent, or explore our thoughts. I’d like to continue the conversation throughout the day/week/month and longer! I want you to TAKE ACTION.
Every topic we discuss here will not have right and wrong answers. Even if you feel that there are right and wrong answers. There may only be more reasonable or less reasonable answers. We together will always seek what’s most reasonable.
Let me know where you stand, if you changed let me know in the comments below. I’d love to chat with you guys about this. Don’t forget to be Reasonable in your comments!
Take Action Section!
At the end I give you 3 ways to experiment with how you might try to become more reasonable. This can be through passive action, assertive action, or aggressive action.
Passive Action – Could be where you take a small step that won’t usually affect anyone else. This step could be something no one ever knows you take, but taking this action could lead you to taking more assertive action.
Assertive Action – Can be an action where people may find out what you’ve done to become more reasonable or maybe it’s a change of habit or mindset change. Could be temporary or more permanent.
Aggressive Action – This is an action that unmistakably identifies the reasonable action you’ve taken to change your habits or direction to become directly more reasonable to yourself, or directly impact the lives of your friends, families, co-workers, or anyone for that matter.
