I was in the car with Ferne, my nearly 14-year-old daughter, and we were talking about the very unique relationship that she has with her 4 brothers and
Allan, the men in the house.
It's hard to talk to the boys.
Why is that?
They just aren't very good listeners.
You are right, they aren't always the best listeners, but just because they don't listen well, doesn't mean that they aren't good people.
How can you say that?
Well, let's take Allan as an example. Whenever you need anything from Allan, he's there. If you need a lift, he's there. If you need a book, he finds it
for you. If you need forms filled out, he takes care of it for you. He's a great guy - even if he's not the best listener.
The problem is that you are expecting to get wine out of a cow. Cows don't deliver wine - they deliver milk and when you expect to get wine but you get
milk instead, you get disappointed. Stop expecting to get wine from a cow. Instead, milk the cow, add a little chocolate, and enjoy.
Coaching is a wonderful, rewarding career. It is a career that allows you to enrich the lives of others, while enriching your own life. It is a career that
is constantly full of excitement and uplifting moments.
