Stop Holiday Drama

We always have the opportunity to create anew if we stop trying to change others and simply work on ourselves. We can always set a boundary, ask for what we want, give a little slack, or choose how much time to spend with someone.

For the first time, they will have to manage themselves. And society is unprepared for it.”

In my upcoming book, No-Drama Leadership, there are many ideas about dialing up or dialing down choice to increase focus or increase freedom.
