I know how important it is for me to communicate with other people relative to their behavioral tendencies rather than like my own tendencies, when we're different. If we both have the same tendencies, then we're lucky. Adapting my communications to them will be easier, because their needs are so much like my own.
These kinds of skills have been my life's work for many years. I feel fortunate that I've been able to participate in such an interesting career. It has been one of helping a lot of people communicate better for better results.

I find that thinking through the projects I'm working on to logical conclusions, works a whole lot better than assuming anything. I know better than to assume anything, but sometimes I don't pay attention to that. I find one more time that making assumptions is not a good idea. :)

I can't remember when I've learned as much in one week in my life as this week while helping my elderly mother to live a higher quality of life.
I find that when I want something more for her than sometimes she appears to not want for herself, I have learned to let it go, so she can be the captain of her own ship. As long as I can help her to not sink the ship, that's a good thing. I had to learn how to let go of wanting a less bumpy ride for her.
I'm grateful I'm getting the experiences at this stage in my life that I didn't get so many years ago. Nothing like doing things back-ass-wards. For me, it doesn't matter, as long as I get the lessons I came here to learn, because, to me, that's what we're here on the planet to do is learn our lessons of truth.
I've kidded with my friends that I went through adolescence 52 years late. One said, "I think you'll find you're not the only one who did that!"
Somehow, I think he must have had a similar experience. :)
Life is good, but I'm convinced it's up to me to make it good for me. I've made all kinds of choices--some good, and some not so good, but through them all, I've learned ALOT! For all of the alot, I'm grateful!! Enuf said. . . . . :)

I spent a big part of my life trying hard NOT to make mistakes, only to find out that making mistakes isn't so bad. I've found many rewards from making my wonderful mistakes, in that I've learned a lot of important things from them.
One thing I do differently now than I've done before, is when I find myself in the middle of one of my mistakes, I stop, and ask myself the question, "What can I learn from this experience?"
What I've found is that by asking that particular question, answers come flooding in, and it is apparent to me, I don't really need to do that one again, to learn what I came here to to learn.
Actually, once I got this, it has been one of the best lessons I've ever learned. I've found that it's important to pay attention to life, and get the lesson, so it doesn't require
more mistakes to learn each lesson.
