The Subtle Art of Human Interaction

Harsh counsels have no effect; they are like hammers, which are always repulsed by the anvil.

The more fiercely someone gets in another’s face, either through words or actions, the less apt the recipient is to listen to them or their message. That is human nature. Have a basic respect for others, whether you are face to face, communicating from 3,000 miles away via social media, or simply evaluating a situation. Make a habit of this advice, and the respect will be reciprocated—at least more often than not. You will also enjoy the added benefit of living a happier life. 

—Mike Hazell
