The past few years I have been asking myself “Why?” to a number of questions that I previously would have written off as unimportant or unanswerable.

For example… I’m terrible with names.

Now I can just make up a reason like “I have a bad memory” or I can ask “Why?” & find the Truth.

For me the Truth is this… I am bad with names because I’m not listening to you & I’m not listening to you because I’m more concerned with leaving you with a good first impression of me.

What I failed to realize is that taking the time to listen to you & actually caring about what you have to say & who you are, would probably have left a much better first impression than waiting for you to stop speaking so I could tell you what a great guy I am.

The goal for today, listen to & care about the people around me & my reputation will take care of itself.

Have a great day everybody!
