Words To Live By
The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Ask and you shall receive.
It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission.
Necessity is the mother of invention.
You get what you inspect, not what you expect.
Comparison is the thief of all joy.
Ideas are commodities but execution is not
In a world where you can be anything, be kind.
Treat others as you would like to be treated.
Compassion is empathy in action
Be Kinder than necessary, everyone you meet is engaged in some kind of struggle.
Honesty without kindness is brutality, and kindness without honesty is manipulation.
If someone apologizes don't say "it's OK" otherwise you are accepting that they hurt you. Instead say "I forgive you" or "thank you". This way you acknowledge that they were wrong or hurt you.
Before you communicate ask yourself these 3 questions:
Is it honest?
Is it kind?
Is it necessary?
