I was watching something on TV that had to do with a host asking the guests how running for the Election had changed them.
Of course, running to be the president of the United States, just running for the office, has to significantly change a person. But every day, in our every day activity we too are changed. Maybe not as profoundly. But slowly, very slowly.
If it is not changing you even slightly over time then maybe you are not challenging yourself. Maybe you should consider experiencing something new. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes.
