What does E + R =?

No it’s not algebra….

It stands for Event + Response = Outcome.

The basic idea is this: Every outcome we experience in life (whether it’s success or failure, health or illness, happiness or frustration) is the result of how we have responded to an earlier event (or events) in our lives.

If you don’t like the outcomes you are currently getting, there are two choices you can make:

  1. You can blame the event (E) for you lack of results (O) or
  2. You can instead simply change your responses (R) to the events (E) – the way things are-until you get the outcomes (O) you want

We’re practising this with teenagers at school this week.

What will you do differently this week?
