There was a Write-off that happened last night, sort of - http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/968834.html
(at any rate, a tie was broken)
Your topic for the week - http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/968050.html
and there are some great conversations happening with this week's Mentor in the Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/968415.html She's a fantastic resource! I'd highly recommend picking her brain!
Yesterday, at work, I was reminded about intention and how little it matters. What matters is how people *interpret* actions. Even if those interpretations are completely from left field.
People often mentally compose their version of reality from these mistaken interpretations - which form their view of you, and often, the world itself.
Which makes life interesting - because I (or the universal "you" in this case) are most likely doing the same damn thing. And people wonder why they have so much trouble communicating with each other...
