Hooks

I’m going to tell you what
To do
And I want you to
Tell
Everyone you know.

First stop and listen.
Do not assume.
Don’t get all your information
From common sources
Figure it out yourself
Go and listen
Then talk.

Write through the most difficult stuff.

Be thoughtful
Then
Be more thoughtful.

Respect the differences you have
What they call these days a
Narrative.

Someone else has a different
Narrative.

Look for hooks on which
You can hang
Peace-making.

Can’t find any hooks?
Go somewhere else.

You will recognize the hooks
On which you may hang
Peace.

You must make
Peace —
Be peace.

When you don’t know what to say
Find your quiet
Practice active
Listening.

The harder it is
The more it is
Right.

Be uncomfortable.

Always close with optimism
Be brave
Don’t toss around in bed at night
And

Never relinquish your
Dream
Of a better future
To negativity
Intransigence
Anger
Fear.

Take this Note To Self
Put it in your pocket and

Read it
Read it
Read it

Until it is
True.
