Don’t be a doubting Thomas! Do you doubt me! Don’t you have better work than raising these doubts! Most of them would have gone through these kind of scenes in one’s life and this might be tricky question,which puts your thoughts to restraint and prevent you from further course of action
Doubt is a double edged sword instrument and precautions should be exercised while using the instrument. The doubt instrument should be judiciously used and should be error free, while exercising this instrument.
Doubt can be considered as missing blanks of an outline story and human mind has a basic tendency to fill the missing gaps of the story of our life
Actually doubt is nothing, but a combination of emotion frame, perception, facts and curiosity.
Emotion frame depends on the series of events, which has triggered the present emotional state of mind. The human emotions are always come with caution sign board –“Drunken Drive is prohibited”. While exercising the instrument called Doubt, emotionless highway is better road taken to reach the horizons of truth
Perception always comes with statutory warning –“Smoking causes cancer”. Here cancer of perception might vary from individual and no standardization can be applied to the concept.
Facts always comes as truth finding instrument and if countered with supporting evidentary documents , the doubt instrument will act as fact finding instrument, and it gives edge in clearing out the perceptions and make the right decision making
Curiosity always acts a compass to human mind and it always goes with tag line-” Ask You shall receive, Seek You shall Find, Knock it shall be opened to you”. Curiosity can propel the individual to reach the destination and if properly aligned can be GPS navigator to find the missing blanks of your story
If you place placard with Number 6 on the ground and two individuals are asked to read the number by standing on either side of placard, answer varies depending upon which side individual is standing .
If doubt instrument is based on the foundation called facts, then curiosity is the perfect navigator of your life.
Simple step process of “Ask, Seek, Knock and find solution” is the fundamental to problem solving process.
- Ask List- Ideation of questions and categorizing them
- Seek List- you can add any supporting facts, which can be backed to the questions raised during the ideation process.
- Knock List- You can try to find out the supporting evidence –either verbal or documentary details to back the rest of the questions.
- Solution- once again raise the ASK list questions, and realign the gathered evidence step by step , either in the following order- backward step (solution- problem) or forward step ( Problem to solution).
Life always goes with the same tag line – Truth shall liberate you.
Next time, when someone raises clichés like don’t be doubting Thomas! Or do you doubt me! Remember to apply the cardinal principal of thought-“Ask! you shall receive, Seek! you shall Find, Knock ! it shall be opened to you”.
Stay curious! Stay healthy!
