“It’s going to be a great day. I’m going to be productive, attentive to others’ problems, a student of life and of Jesus….”
That “wham” could be any of the following:
- one of your children hitting the other
- a spouse’s snippy remark
- someone pulls in front of you at a 4 way-stop, freeway, or parking spot
- the first email / phone call you ‘field’ at the office
- you drop your phone
- more work-load from management
- the weather is miserable
How do we normally react? And how do we interact with someone who has had one or a few of these things happen to them?
In Business and Real Estate there is a saying: “Location, Location, Location” – it is important to have the best location to be the most effective, influencial, and profitable.
In Relationship, might I suggest we have: “Perspective, Perspective, Perspective“?
I’m currently reading the Gospel of Mark. Jesus sure had the perspective thing down.
