Rules to build healthy relationships with others: 1) cultivate your mind daily and be able to have something to share first on a wide range of topics, and second particularly on what interests you, 2) give credit to others for their efforts, 3) do not try to influence others except through first developing a rapport by showing interest in what they like then by example, 4) share your passions but do not violate rule number three, 5) invest in others and give to charity, 6) take ownership of your short comings and take action to overcome them, 7) make honoring commitments to others a top priority, 8) each evening, determine at least one important matter concerning relationships and for the next day, schedule a task based thereon, 9) strive for consistency and trustworthiness, not perfection, 10) keep a journal. I will live by these 10 guidelines and be an example to others, including my wife, my 4 grown daughters and my 9 grandchildren, and great-grandson.

The plan to make your message palatable to the masses with humor and shorter missives is a good one. I try not to write blogs that are too serious, and always try to inject a bit of humor, even with important subjects. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!!! I'll keep watch, and wish you all the best.

Spark on.

Jane
