It’s normal to be in such a hurry that we treat getting a good place in line like it’s a life and death competition.
It’s normal to be so preoccupied with our own thoughts that we barely hear what the other person is saying.
It’s normal that we watch a presentation with the eye of a critic more than the eye of an appreciative recipient.
It’s normal that we compare ourselves with those around us and see them as competitors whom we must beat.
It’s normal to keep score and hold a grudge.
It’s normal to say that the only purpose of our business is to make a profit.
It’s normal to indulge in outrage before we’ve stopped to understand the other side.
It may be normal, but normal isn’t working very well. Maybe it’s time to stop being normal.
