Thought of The Day.

Something I came across- I think it’s true.

Here’s to kindness, understanding and love.

Thought of The Day. Seeds.

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but the seeds you plant.”

Thought of The Day. Believe Them.

This wisdom from Maya Angelou is a great life lesson -personally or professionally, in our leaders, pretty much around the board. No matter how many times, second, third chances you may give, it often comes back to that principle.

I learned this again this week in a business related situation, no more chances now..and then the other wisdom came to mind ‘You teach people how to treat you” Β – both go hand in hand. Think about it – walk away, do better now that you absolutely know the situation isn’t right and you may not getting what you want out of something or the respect you deserve. Heed the lesson and keep it pushing forward.
