A boat doesn’t go forward if each one is rowing their own way. ~Swahili proverb
When Lin started with the Knicks, things changed. For one, they started winning. Why? Because Jeremy Lin is not a selfish player. He doesn’t hog the ball. He has a great attitude, and respect for his team. He’s made the whole team better.
It occurred to me that we writers could learn a lesson from Jeremy Lin.
The other day I heard someone say we should have selective hearing: “Listen to the ones who build you up.” I agree, but we have to be realistic–don’t listen to phoney compliments.
