Eleanor Roosevelt once said…

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.”

This week, notice the content of your conversations with this quote in mind.

Ideas? Events? People?

This week, when you are reflecting on what has happened, notice the content of your reflections with this quote in mind.

Ideas? Events? People?

It is the ideas that will enable you to trigger change, and then the events and people will change around you.

For change to happen, the ideas must come first.

If there are few ideas in your conversations and reflections, then find someone who likes to discuss ideas.

My best wishes, Paul
