You kicked sand in my face

My Daddy is bigger and stronger than your Daddy!

Oh You’re gonna get it . . . My big Brother is going to beat you up.

You are just a meanie!

I’m gonna tell the teacher on you.

Adult version:

My Principal Broker is going to beat up your Principal Broker!

If you don’t straighten up, I’m calling my attorney.

You’re being unethical and unprofessional, and I’m going to report you to the Association AND the Real Estate Commission.


Aren’t we all better than this?

I snapped this picture while touring Cane Ridge High School

Our high Schoolers apparently “Get it” – a la Stephen Covey

Be proactive

Begin with the end in mind

Put first things first

Think win-win

Seek first to understand, then to be understood


Sharpen the Saw

Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs.

OK Adults!

I think it’s time for a refresher course for some of us on being a responsible adult.

ESPECIALLY in the Social media space where those who have forgotten their social graces can hide behind single dimensional interaction can so easily be party poopers.

A special thanks to the good folks (Moderators) who efficiently “police” their pages.

OBTW . . . If you have a Facebook page, YOU are the moderator of your page, and YOU have the sole responsibility to “Police” the participants on your page.

A good starting point is filtering the banter through the filter of Stephen Covey’s 8 Habits . . .

Be nice!
