Ripples in the waterI read somewhere recently that we are best defined by how we affect the people around us.

So how do you affect people?

What ripples do you make in your social or work pond?

In the future what will people remember about you?

More importantly, what will they remember about how you made them feel?

This thinking reminds me of a quote from Catherine Aird…

“If you can’t serve as a good example, you’ll just have to serve as a horrible warning”.

Here’s a tip… Be authentic, and within that sphere of authenticity, what can you do now to encourage the future memories that you would be proud of?

Here are a few ideas on being authentic, and a lovely quote from Emerson.

My best wishes, Paul
