Verbal Clones

I could be part of the problem. One of my all time favorite quotes is by Maya Angelou:
“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.”
I subscribe to that ideal but lately, not so much. I've been consumed by cynicism (sarcasm's evil twin).

In a meeting today it was so clear- I've been verbally cloning negative comments I've picked up around the office. Each clone is less intelligent than the previous one- so I've actually been perpetuating stupid.

If I really believe that I am a change agent then the narrative I'm telling should be a more compelling story. A better story.

New chapter- change for good. Don't clone.
