Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Permission Leads to Relationships (an Asset)

Love it. Thanks, Peter.

"The person who says it is impossible should not interrupt the person who is doing it."


Came accross this quote from Tao and thought of you.

My mind works faster than my brain so I can't really say why. It's a bit like an old friend who tells you to do something - you just do it and learn to trust their wisdom.

Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.

Ah, those little mishaps. My Dutch partner advised fixing my omission of a tag in today's post on GBXM. I wrecked the front page! #facepalm

How do you know when it's time to update/change your promises? I can see how you would revisit them regularly to assess delivery and improvement (bigger, better promises), but I also see them as being fundamental - deeply-rooted beliefs which shouldn't change much over time.
