It’s always interesting to me how life and business unfold. The saying about honey works better than vinegar is so true, but I’ve learned that through the school of hard knocks. Experience is a great teacher, but if I can teach someone to treat others with kindness before they exercise unkindness I will.
That’s not to say we go around being yes men and women because we don’t need another liar in the world. There’s plenty of that to go around, but we don’t need another jerk either. And so the paradox of life continues as we do the best we can with what we’ve been given. But let’s not settle good peoples. Let’s do everything within our power to make the world a better place. It’s not going to happen overnight because we didn’t get here overnight, but every day is a new day in which we are given a fresh start.
Let’s try not to let past failures ruin the present nor the success of the future.
We are good people able to make good things happen. Don’t let the lies, liars or jerks make you think otherwise.
