I’ve had several ideas for blog posts floating around in my head for weeks now, but between one thing and another it’s been way too easy to put off actually writing anything. But today’s blog post by Seth Godin called Not a gift has kicked me off my “stuck” and into action. Seth makes such a solid point about how the attributes we admire and desire in others, which we often describe as being gifts are in fact attitudes and not gifts. People aren’t born generous, honest, or thoughtful. Those and a host of other qualities are attitudes, not gifts. And we can choose to have positive and helpful attitudes or we can choose not to have them.
So, today, what are you going to choose?
