The Narcissism of Minor Differences

Author and speaker Seth Godin wrote this short blog entry last month that spoke to me a lot. Here it is:

Really?

You’re arguing about that trivial difference between us?

Substantive disagreement is rarely the issue that splits tribes, destroys thriving groups or wastes time at meetings. Instead, it’s our desire to carve out a little space for ourselves in a group that seems to agree on almost everything.

The work is too important to sidetrack about the things we disagree on.

Point out this narcissism when you see it and move on to the important stuff, to amplifying the things we agree on.

I shared it in case in might also bless you. His original entry can be found here.
