“Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them – every day begin the task anew.”
–St. Francis de Sales (1567–1622)
Part of the problem is the eggshells.
We’ve laid them out around ourselves and become worried about stepping on those that others have laid around themselves.
Some of us (all of us at one time or another) have forgotten our interdependence and obligation to other people. We’ve put ourselves (our comfort, our hearts, our minds) at the center of our universe (our universe?).
I want to encourage you to Love Your People.
Who are your people? Everyone who’s important to you… your family… your friends… your colleagues… your customers, patients, team, students. These are your people (and you’re theirs).
And love? It’s care.
And care? It’s attention and contribution (what you give, what you do)…
