• Finger paint more and point fingers less.
• Do less correcting and more connecting.
• Take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes.
• Take more hikes and fly more kites.
• Stop playing serious and more seriously play.
• Run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
• Do more hugging and less tugging.
• Be firm less often and affirm much more.
• Build self-esteem first and the house later.
• Teach less about the love of power and more about the power of love.
