Willful blindness. It’s actually a legal term that means, you should have known, but refused to know. Think of the legal analyst and top-level executives involved in the Bernie Madoff Ponzi Scheme. This is an example of widespread institutional and a governing bodies’ willful blindness. But we all engage in willful blindness to some degree in our lives, often putting ourselves and those close to us at risk.
It's not uncommon to hear people talk about work like its all drudge and not much else. But popular studies reveal that nearly 87% of Americans actually enjoy most, if not all, aspects of their work. Part of the reason work may get a bad rap is that for many, people the typical 40-hour workweek is a thing of the past. Working longer hours and feeling pressured to stay connected via emails, texts and social media allows work to easily spill into evenings, weekends and even vacations and that can lead to burnout at worst and fatigue and stress at best.
Given the nearly constant bombardment of negative media messages, the challenging economy and the ever growing to-do lists. Many people feel as if they are living in a pressure cooker or like they are spinning their wheels, but going nowhere.
Consider, often there is very little we can do about what is going on around us...the only real control we have is ourselves and what goes on in our own bodies and minds.
