05 Aug The Golden Rule
I believe we all live by a code; whether we realize it or not. The golden rule “treat others like you want to be treated” is part of the code I try to live by. Yesterday I was re-reading one of my favorite books “ The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” and this passage really sank in – forcing me to dive deeper and see the golden rule in a new light. Hopefully it has a similar impact on you as well. “The golden rule says ‘Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.’ While on the surface that could mean to do for them what you would like to have done to you, I think the more essential meaning is to understand them deeply as individuals, the way you would want to be understood, and then treat them in terms of that understanding.
I encourage you take a few moments today. Reflect on your personal and professional relationships. Can you do better? This week make a sincere effort to better understand those around you. This takes time and it takes effort and there is no shortcut for this. It isn’t necessarily something you can pencil in on your calendar with a start and end time…but I assure you, it is time well spent.
