Email hide-a-way

It used to be that people relied upon voice mail to screen out unwanted conversations. While still in use, it is both primitive and limiting.

Technology has provided an even more limiting filter for unwanted communication in the form of email. While there are substantial benefits in compressing and accelerating communication with the proper use of email, more and more users have constructed a barrier with email and are limiting direct contact through the email stream. Despite the many advantages of emails (and I am an incorrigible user) I find myself having numerous back and forth emails to cover a simple point that could be more effectively completed with one phone call. You know, actually talking person to person.

It might help us to remember that each email should have a point and it is ok to decide its purpose and whether actually talking with someone might better accomplish your goal.

Compromise.....

"It doesn't matter if it is a black cat or a white cat, as long as it catches the mouse." Deng Xiao Ping

As I read through my morning reading in the little book "It's Never Too Late" (by patrick lindsey), I learn today about the power of compromise.  All too often, I feel like it is either my way or the highway, and I fail to see the benefit of listening to another opinion and then compromising my position.   As long as I have an end goal in mind, it pays to adapt and try different ways to achieve that goal.  As stated in the book, things are rarely black or white, most lie somewhere in the grey center. 

Today, my eyes will be open to different opportunities and different ways to reach my goals.  Perhaps today, it will pay to be different!
