There’s a lot of jumping going on these days, only the jumping is not athletic in nature and not physical in value. It does, apparently, work the brain – even if it isn’t in a positive nature.
What jumping am I talking about?
Conclusions. Jumping to conclusions.
Damn it already, if social media (and regular media) isn’t set afire by people jumping to conclusions. Just since Thursday last week, there have been people jumping to conclusions at a record pace. False news. Misleading editing. All to get clicks or push an agenda. And the jumping just keeps getting worse!
The only place I wish people would jump is off a cliff, especially if they would like to find a conclusion. The conclusion can be at the bottom. Dead stop.
Get the facts people. Know the whole story. Investigate. Wait. There is always more than what meets the first impression.
Sound bites and neat, little 7-10 second clips (or a still photo) don’t tell the story.
If you’re going to jump, head straight for some place high with a definite dead-end, conclusion.
Getting tired of hearing ya’ll.
