Give the Gift of Forgiveness

The verb, forgive, is defined as, "Stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake."

Forgiveness is a skill, and it is one of the most important traits a leader can and should develop.

People are going to make mistakes and disappoint you. Don't hold grudges--inside or outside of the office.

I am not talking about terrible attrocities. I realize that takes time. I am talking about the petty mess that I witness. The stuff that is so meaningless that it just doesn't make sense.

Many of you are sending flowers to that special someone today. That someone who knows you already love them. And for your good deed you will receive love for a day (maybe longer).

But if you really want to make a difference in this world, give the gift of forgiveness. It will last a lifetime.
