16 DO IT DIFFERENT

  • Ask, do not assume
  • Agree to disagree
  • Be open to suggestions and other perspectives
  • Be proactive instead of reactive
  • Be the change you want in the world
  • Be willing to be unpopular by standing up for what is right
  • Be willing to be wrong
  • Do more, talk less
  • Do not allow yourself to be swayed into saying yes if you know you cannot deliver
  • Do not be a platform for gossipers
  • Understand the who, what, when, where, and why in there proper context before running with hear say/rumors believing it to be truth.
  • Go against the grain and do the unexpected
  • Know and understand your intent before you speak
  • Listen instead of taking over the conversation
  • Listen to what is being said and NOT what you want to hear
  • Mean what you say
  • Be able to say "I am sorry" when warranted
  • Pause and think before you criticize
  • Say what you mean
  • When unsure ask for clarification, meaning and intent.
  • Try not to respond when deliberately goaded, sometimes the best response is no response

REMEMBER

  • Assumptions are not facts
  • Perception can be a deceptive
  • Potential is merely hypnosis of what could be until you are actually doing it
  • Acceptance does not mean you are liked
  • Tolerance does not mean you are favored
  • No is not a bad word
  • Being different is sometimes a blessing
  • The rich, famous, affluent and privileged shit stinks just like yours and they will die and decay like everybody else. (Meaning no matter the station or situation in life we are all subject to this same human reality)
