The Golden Rule...you know...Do unto others as you would have them do to you....or you can read it from the Message, which I like...Ask what you want people to do then grab the initiative and do it! (yep, a paraphrase of a paraphrase!)
We are all so busy. There are so many tasks and so much to do. Everywhere we turn is another crisis or activity calling for our attention. Often we are too busy to be in relationships with others. Often we make ourselves too busy to be in relationship. Yet, we're starving for just that...relationship.
The challenge today is to be present in the relationship to the failure of the tasks.
