Duncan Nugget® #39: Context is Everything


Imagine that it’s 95 degrees. Is that hot? It depends on the context, doesn’t it?

If it’s the middle of February in Philly, 95 degrees is hot. If 95 is the temperature of your oven while you’re trying to cook a turkey then 95 is cold. It’s the same temperature, but the context changes everything.

“That’s not what I meant. You’re taking it the wrong way.”

Does that phrase sound familiar?

Something said the wrong way or taken out of context can spark an argument or start a war. It’s the same set of words, but the context changes everything.

Your problems can propel you or paralyze you. It’s the same scenario, but your frame of reference—the context—changes everything.

Before you assume, believe, or do anything THINK about the context because context is everything.
