- Pride gets a bum wrap from Judeo Christian traditions. I'm proud of plenty of shit I've done. Why is that bad? I'm 100% entitled to be proud of my objectively impressive achievements.
You also got me thinking that pride is a great thing if a person recognizes pride in accomplishment is relative. You may not care about my accomplishments, and that’s okay.
Arrogance sneaks in when one assumes that everyone else is also impressed at my accomplishments. You all want to hear me drone on about them, right?
Good news. Even at 44, I’m beginning to suspect I may have some early signs of mesenchymalimia. :)
Good news. Seems like they would be purposed for or effectively making one controlling group rich the moment they became securities, wouldn't they?
Any special reason that BCT and ETH are spared?
Seriously though, the Covey chart is so simple and effective, I only wish that others around me would abide by it better.
I can remember hanging out with a friend, as we were just starting our careers, that felt compelled to answer his phone no matter what was going on. We’d be driving somewhere, he’d have his phone on vibrate, we’re in the middle of a conversation and he’d pick up his phone and start talking. Didn’t even give me a, “Hey man, I’ve gotta call coming in and I’ve gotta take it...”
Man, that ticked me off.
I done see this phone etiquette stuff as the root issue. More of a basic consideration of other people thing. Something that I find myself continually reinforcing to my kids. I can see that I’ll use the chart with them at some point as the learn to prioritize their connections with other people.
Thanks for sharing.
I thank you for your Quadrant 4 contribution. :)
I'm all about slowing my inevitable decline too. My Dad had a spinal cord injury when I was 15 (July of 1989) that left him quadriplegic from age 42 until his passing at age 62. As a result, I've never taken my own mobility and fitness lightly.
Seriously? I thought it was the fresh smog of Beijing that gave you that hacking cough that followed you home. Nice one bro.
Just watched the Feebles trailer. No lawsuit necessary. That it exists is punishment enough.
