Lessons Learned – #4

Number four among the best lessons I learned this year:

Seek First – The best parable I heard this year? “A mother, whose daughter was addicted to sweets, approached Ghandi and asked him to speak to the girl. Ghandi said: ‘Bring your daughter back to me in three weeks’ – so the mother did. He took the girl aside and told her all about the harmful effects of too many sweets and the importance of stopping bad habits. The mother thanked him and asked, ‘Why didn’t you just tell her that three weeks ago?’ Ghandi replied: ‘Because three weeks ago, I was still addicted to sweets.'”
