Today’s Good Word ~ Advice

Good advice is a treasure. Never let it pass by when it comes knocking. I recall an experience I had as a department chair in an academic setting. I was having a contentious relationship with a senior colleague in the department. I was sharing my story with another, more experienced, department chair as we walked in the hallway. He put his arm around and said, “Ray, it took me a long time to learn this lesson. I give it to you freely. Never get into a pissing contest with a skunk. You’ll only lose.” I laughed, but instantly knew he was right. That piece of advice has helped me time and again throughout life.
