Would it help?


“Would it help?” – 3 powerful words that cut through the noise. The next time you find yourself: feeling a surge of anger getting irritated reacting to something that isn’t going as per plan thinking up a sarcastic response to get back at someone harboring envy or jealousy feeling worried Ask yourself – would it help? A calm and measured response aside, nothing really does help. Any other reaction is a waste of time, energy and emotion. You know this. I know this. We also know it is hard to remember this in the heat of the moment. So, instead of expecting us to respond better, let’s just make it a point to ask – “Would it help?” Over time, we will respond better. (I thought of this wonderful line recently as I thought of a post from December 2015 after watching “The Bridge of Spies.” If you’ve seen the movie, you’ve likely seen these words in action. And, if you haven’t, maybe it’s time to see the movie. :)) Share this: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Like this: Like Loading... Related https://alearningaday.com/2017/10/24/would-it-help-2/

Election Day


It’s election day and I’m going to stop by the polls this morning and vote. It would be easy for me to skip the polls as there is not much at stake in NYC this year. Mayor de Blasio is going to get re-elected fairly easily as he has no strong challengers. The same is true of the other citywide officials and most city council members, including mine. But I am going to vote in spite of all of that. I think one of our biggest problems in our country is voter apathy. So I am going to demonstrate against that by showing up and voting in an election with little to nothing at stake. http://avc.com/2017/11/election-day/
