I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip asks: What are your most important values. Use them today
One of my big values is to be understanding and kind. I naturally have a lot of empathy, and I try to go with that. I try to appreciate other viewpoints. I’m not always successful, but I do try.
As my kids struggle with exams at the end of the semester, I have been avoiding trying to give them advice, suggest things, try to help, or admonish them for struggling. I appreciate the difficulties and am just being a listener and supporter.
And I’m baking things they like to eat.
