Effective or not? Faced with a new idea or innovation the reaction of many people is to ask “Does it work?”

This may be a natural response, but bear in mind that things don’t have to be proven to work for you to use them. You use countless things everyday without guarantee that they’ll work, not understanding how they work, if they do.

Try asking yourself if a spoon ‘works’, or if compassion or gratitude are ‘effective’, and you’ll see what I mean. Things don’t have to work, nor do you necessarily have to understand them, for them to be effective.
