New rules for dealing w/ people during these trying times...Day Three

#JazzBluesFlorida #jazz #blues #Florida #Concerts #Festivals #Clubs

1) Be nice. You never know when the person you are dealing with is just one little 'tap' from going over the edge in a manic psychotic wipe-out, that would of course, include you.

2) Be honest. Can’t pay that bill now? Tell them before not doing so draws someone else into your world of misery and despair. Somewhere down the line someone else needs the money, and if they can’t plan for not getting, it makes it worse for everyone. And we don’t want that, now, do we?

3) Be responsible. This may be the hardest short-term change to accomplish, but it will pay off the most in the long run. If you say you are going to do something; do it, and do it as best you can. And if things don’t work, take responsibility for it and do something to fix it. Inaction in delaying implementation and inaction and inaction in moving to correct things gone awry creates layers of pain that are heavier to lift with each passing moment nothing is done.
