We all like to be right, but right about what?
Here are a few ‘rights’ from 4 decades of business & marriage:
You can be right!
… and sleep on the couch
… and finish it all by yourself
… or be humble
… or be kind
What is more important to you: being right or the other person?
Our response to others many time reveals our true heart: is it all about me or them?
Instead of focusing on what we think is right, we should open our ears and heart to what others are saying, so that we may understand more clearly. Then we earn the privilege of sharing our thoughts and being ‘right’ becomes of little importance.
Build people then watch what happens.
