Assign It To "Good Intentions".

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services 607851

Thanks to Timmothy's comic strip today I found some wonderful perspectives on intended behavior.

I've assumed positive intent with every person I've encountered. Not only did it enabled me to become a better human being, also, in most cases has benefitted the other person. Dux Raymond Sy

Be aware: When you catch yourself assigning negative intent to someone, take a step back and breathe.

Assuming positive intent can be healthy

for relationships, and some say it can

lead to less stress and happier people around you.

I "intend" to apply positive intent to others actions, today and in the future.

Michael Elliott I think we all can think of a situation (or many) with a reaction like Philemon's. Thank God for grace and forgiveness.

And then I watch the ID channel, and I think the complete opposite.

I need to remind myself every day Doug Dawes not to have knee jerk reactions. Some days I need to do it many times a day. Oddly enough, yesterday when I wrote the post, I failed miserably.

You'll get no argument from me, Bob, on this issue. I also approach all people with positive intent (until anyone shows me I shouldn't).

Good morning Bob. As you ponder the thought put forward as a result of Timmothy's cartoon do you ever wonder about the psychologist who said he would not make it through college? An example of people who make mistakes. Enjoy your day.

Yes and no Wayne Martin . There are area's in communication that Timmothy is sorely lacking. As far as work goes he would need a very patient supervisor as he often has difficulty comprehending instructions. That being said once he grasps the mission, like putting out a daily comic strip, he is flawless in carrying out the task.

I am a big fan of the progress Timmothy has made over the years as you Know Bob "RealMan" Timm. You see him daily and have been a big part of his continued progress. May we continue to see his creative talents.

Hmm, I am thinking that he regurgitated it, rather than getting it back from Joe, haha.
