::: think before you act :::
what motivates me in life ::
The best way to earn respect is to treat others with respect . . .
No one is perfect, of course . . . If you make a mistake, admit it . . . if someone else makes a mistake, remember that your irritation is rarely another person's motivation . . . instead, focus on the situation and its solution . . .
Part of respect is knowing enough about others to know what they're likely to like and dislike . . . the polite person is sensitive to differences in personality types and acts on that knowledge . . .
Problems that start small can become big if you let them go on very long . . .
