A few short lessons.


The beauty of unwelcome experiences is they have SOOOO much to teach us! A few lessons brought to life for me this week include…..

1> Don’t mix friends & business.

2> Slow to hire quick to fire!

3> Miscommunication is inevitable without written agreements.

4> Trust your gut and don’t rationalize or minimize another persons inappropriate behavior!

5> Never hesitate to speak the truth and/or to call someone out on their bullshit.… just don’t do it in an email when you’re pissed off.

6> No matter how low they go, don’t respond in kind… Hold the high ground and keep true to your own character & integrity!  Believe me it feels so much better to know you did everything in your power to create a positive empowering outcome despite how reprehensible or irrational they may be acting!

Bonus Lesson of the week….

7> You never know when some drunk distracted texting rolling death machine (or sweet girl just not paying attention) is gonna take a last second left in front of you so WEAR YOUR SEATBELT it will save your freakin life!

    I love this post. I especially love it because if you’re paying attention, you’ll notice that you get TWO bonus lessons (double 3s)! ;D Number 3.1 was refreshed in my mind just the other day… thank GOODNESS for the sent email folder which clearly outlines the discussions around the agreement!

    And for number 5, I just saw this quote the other day and LOVE it:
    “How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”

      Whoa double 3’s that’s like a triple double lesson as in… DOUBLE READ before posting stuff! Actually on important stuff it should be double read and then let someone else proof and then have your mac read it back to you, then wait 24hrs do it again… and then send :P
