The Golden Rule

During a trip to Chic fil A, my three-year-old daughter was given a book about The Golden Rule. When she asked me to read it to her, I could tell she understood the message. And, I kept thinking about it, as well. It's a rule that's clear, positive and memorable. That's excellent communication.

As you know, I'm a great believer in communicating (if I didn't, I'm in the wrong business). For years I have been talking about how positive communication pays for itself ten fold, but I had not thought of excellent communication being an application of The Golden Rule. Nonetheless, it is.

My daughter's book on the best rule yardstick for our lives reminded me that we need to communicate to people the way we want to be communicated to. It also reminded me that we like to be in the know. So, are you sharing your knowledge with others?

In everything, do unto others as you would want them to do unto you. Communicate to people--people appreciate it.

Have a great day.
