Same Old Same Old Can Be A Blessing

Just another day at the office?

Today is gonna be just like yesterday, isn’t it? Same old same old. What a huge blessing that today will just be more of the same. Yesterday was such an amazing gift to unpack and share with the rest of the world. Yesterday…an email excerpt from a childhood friend:

“…(her daughter) said she thinks it’s because your intentions are good. You don’t have some hidden agenda. You WANT to understand what people see and how they think.”

Insight: I respectfully disagreed with Lorie’s blog post comment (in which she respectfully disagreed with my me) – the quote above reveals how important intent is.

  1. Jeff,

    I think people evaluate intent more strongly when there is a pattern of behavior that is consistent with the perceptions. In other words, reputation does precede people and gives some meaningful context to the intent of one’s actions (and insight into one’s character).


  2. Bob, I think you’re saying I have deposited an abundance of good will which then facilitates (should there ever be a need) the ability to respectfully agree to disagree.

    Thanks for adding great insight.

  3. Bob, as my Father-in-law always says, “And likewise”.

    Do as much good as you can, to as many people as you can, as often as you can.
