Recalculating

REALCULATING can save your life. Your marriage. Your relationships. Your business. Your career. Your reputation. Or even your image — if we want to be shallow today. 

Many people don’t even bother to recalculate. So they end up falling flat on their faces, losing the most valuable people and things in their lives. 

What does it mean to recalculate? Simply put, it means pausing, taking a deep breath, praying (the most important part), and thinking of the best thing to do next in any given situation. In the course of a day, we’re faced with different situations that require decisive action or a wise response from us. 

Many times, we just react. We don’t pause to recalculate.  To pray and think. We just react impulsively, or blast off with our mouths — which take on a life of its own the minute we open it when we’re angry. Have you noticed? I have. It’s an eerie feeling — listening to my own voice and hearing the words coming out of my mouth. And I’m thinking: Why in the world did I say that?!! What in the world am I saying?!! OMG. (Oh my gosh, not Oh my God) Stop this already! 

Too late. Ugly words have already been said. Damage has already been done. Now, we have to go through the agonizing task of damage control or relationship overhaul. Or file bankruptcy and start all over again. 

Unfortunately, many times, it’s not that simple. Some people won’t ever forget or forgive us for the awful things we’ve said or done to them. And we’re not able to pick up the pieces. That’s why I think the Tagalog word for “losing it” is such a Wordsmith’s treasure: “nagkalat”. Huwag tayong magkalat. Let’s learn to recalculate. 

For those who are particularly image-conscious — since we can all be shallow sometimes — this one’s for you as well! 

1. Recalculate when someone says or does something hurtful, humiliating or mean to you. Don’t open your mouth to retaliate — never go down to that person’s level. It’s a waste of time and energy. And disastrous for your image. People talk. 

Instead — pause, take a deep breath, pray for wisdom and self-control. Tell God you forgive this person and leave him/her to His hands. (Not to worry, God Himself will avenge you, mete out punishment or discipline to the max, on your behalf!)

Having done all that, with God’s prodding, say and do whatever it is that He tells you to do. 

You’ll know it’s from Him if the words or actions impressed on you are not hurtful, humiliating, or mean. God’s unmistakable trademarks are well-described by these adjectives: peaceful, calming, and truthful. Builds up rather than tears down. 

In fact, the Bible says, “A gentle answer turns away wrath.” In the rare case that it doesn’t (because there’s something terribly wrong with the person), just walk away and don’t dignify whatever’s been said with an answer. That keeps you dignified, safe and secure. And gives you time to recalculate, reboot, regroup. 

2. Recalculate when you’ve said or done something hurtful, humiliating, or mean to someone. Stop your hurtful words and actions immediately. Say sorry right away if the person is still around. 

Be specific, concise and sincere when apologizing. For example, say: “I’m sorry I insulted you. I shouldn’t have done that. Please forgive me.” 

Don’t make excuses. No rationalizations or justifications, either. That shows you’re not really sorry. 

Or worse, don’t accuse to justify your apology: “I’m sorry I screamed at you. But what in the world were you thinking?!! Why did you do that?!!” Invalid apology right there. It’ll only make things worse. 

3. Recalculate when you’ve made a mistake, or have a feeling you made a mistake or a wrong decision. Pause. Pray. Ask God for wisdom. If it’s clear or looks like you made a mistake, admit it and take full responsibility for your contribution to that mistake. Then make a plan of action to correct it. 

Validate by asking the advice of some godly, mature, calm, intelligent friends whose lives speak well of their ability to make wise, sound, productive decisions. 

4.  Recalculate before you make a major decision that will significantly affect your life, that of your loved ones, or the people God has entrusted to your care — like your staff and employees, for example.  

Pause. Pray. Ask for God’s wisdom and direction. Validate and put into tangible terms by asking the advice of godly, wise friends whose lives show that their opinions are reliable and trustworthy. 

There are many other situations in our lives that call for recalculation. Calibration. Many people have made messes of their lives because they’re trigger-happy, impulsive, arrogant (and are therefore absolute fools) in the way they react to situations. They think that if they’re arrogant and intimidating and demeaning, they win. They think that if they can scream back and retaliate, they win. They think that if they get one over you, they win. 

Wrong. Absolutely wrong. If we react to situations that way, then we not only get a horrible reputation, but we also pass on this reprehensible behavior and reputation to our own children. It’s called a generational curse, by the way. Recalculating can save you from that. 

Don’t dig a hole deeper than you’re already in. Or better yet, don’t fall into a hole that’s totally avoidable. Recalculate.

“Fools think their way is right. But the wise listen to others.” (Proverbs 12: 15)
