Personal improvement gone wrong.

The woman customer at the bookstore was engaged in a barrage of loud criticism towards the store’s staff, gradually turning into a one-sided screaming outburst, on her part.

The problem?

The store’s staff could not find the copy of the book she had ordered: “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.”

If we aren’t careful, our efforts towards realizing our potential through self-improvement can be little more than a surface veneer.

That is, if all we do is take in personal growth data but don’t translate any of the principles into actions.

“Deeds speak”

“Actions speak louder than words.”

“Acts, not words.” Or, in Latin, “Facta Non Verba”, which is the motto of the Canadian military’s elite special forces unit, Joint Task Force  2 (JTF2).
