Clubhouse rules

Years ago, I heard about a neighborhood club of the backyard variety created and run entirely by the children themselves, who had just three rules:

1.     Don’t act big.
2.     Don’t act small.
3.     Be medium.

Practice: Notice when you puff up or shrink down. Try to identify what has you acting bigger or smaller than you are: It’s typically a sign of trouble.

Fortunately, the trouble is rarely in the present.
