Posted: February 21st, 2010 | Category: Common Sense | Comments

A classic sense of humor always reflects tolerance, whimsey and depth of character. BEING genuinely funny also requires creativity, diplomacy and a prevailing awareness of the humorist’s own faults, missteps and inherited challenges.

When we spend too much of our lives simply listening and learning, we fail to establish a necessary pattern where others might benefit from what we’ve uncovered, regardless of how important it might be. It’s often hard to tell if what we’ve discovered will be valued, but that should in no way cause any hesitation to share with anyone willing to listen and consider what we have to say.
