The Mirror, Flashlight, and Sandpaper

Well... it looks like the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday... let's hope we don't have six more weeks of winter. However, Punxsutawney Phil is not the only one looking at shadows this week...

Have you ever heard of the concept of the Mirror, Flashlight and Sandpaper? Interestingly, these are not three separate items. They collectively represent us and our duty to our communities. As the mirror, where are we leading by example and reflecting the best values of our family, community, and careers? As the flashlight, where are we quick to illuminate and share praise, while also having the courage to shine light on the dark, difficult, and yet important matters? As the sandpaper, course to add positive friction and tension as needed, with the goal of creating a smooth, polished and better community.

It's not easy to be any of these items, but we are at our best when we are all three and experience others reflecting these same values.

So, where do you need to be a mirror, a flashlight, or a piece of sandpaper?

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
