What Picture Are YOU Painting?


Have you talked with people that complain all of the time?  Are they painting with the right brush and using the appropriate colors?  It sounds strange; however, we know they are coming to make a visit.

Let’s ask these questions before picking up our brushes of complaint.

  1. Have I considered the outcome from this conversation?;
  2. Am I complaining to the person that will make a difference?;
  3. Am I able to keep my cool or painting with ‘bright red’ remarks;
  4. Did I consider other elements of the conversation such as the time of day or does this matter?; and
  5. Will my complaint make a difference or cause more confusion?

Maya Angelou says: ‘What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it.  If you can’t change it, change the way YOU think about it.  Don’t complain.”

Okay what color is on the end of your paint brush?
