The concept caught my attention when the Apple store employee described her process for successfully dealing with difficult people:
“Assume good intentions,” she said. This had not been my automatic response to such challenges.
It is now.
Understanding that the only person I can change is myself, I used this approach during the past 24 hours: with a”difficult” butcher, a grouchy cab driver and a poorly written cookbook recipe.
I highly recommend this attitude upgrade. Try it…along with today’s refreshing recipe tossing strawberries with spinach in Farmer’s Market Strawberry Nut Salad
