1. Let people get to know you. My feelings were hurt today when I learned of a party that I really would have liked to have been invited to. I later realized how ridiculous my expectations were to have even been invited when I had not given any of the people throwing the party a chance to get to know me. It reminded me that if I want to get to know a group of people, I have to make the effort to get to know them and give them the equal opportunity to get to know me.

2. Read every single email. Seriously. You never know what you could miss.

3. I showed my daughter the opening monologue to Ferris Bueller's Day Off today. The humor was not lost on her. It is still so very, very good.
