Every now and then I come across a message which reminds me about a focus I have in life — understanding. Remembering to ask the question WHY. There’s a reason for the behavior in front of you — for the way someone is presenting to you. THE POWER OF WHY was created with that mindset as its focus. It’s this framework that reminds me I have a choice on how I respond to others — that I can choose to be kind, inquisitive and compassionate regardless of what I’m observing.
Everyone has a story.
Everyone is living in their own context.
So, the purpose of this particular blog post is to remind us of that message — seek to understand and be kind. When I saw a recent social media post quoting the late Robin Williams, it resonated with me and I wanted to share it with you.
It’s a personal goal of mine — some days I do really well — some days I’m not as successful. But I keep aiming for the target.
That’s all I really want to say today.
STRIVE TO BE KIND. ALWAYS.

Great message and so very true. Reminds me of another quote I have associated with Robin William’s quote: “One smile can change their life, one compliment can improve their day”.
Thanks, Clint. Another truism for sure.
This moved me so much. Let’s pass it on to as many people as possible!
