If we compared our fingerprints we’d have to look very carefully to tell the difference even though we know that like us, they’re one-of-a-kind.Were we to go to a restaurant to share a meal, chances are we’d choose different things from the menu, but we’d both put our food and drinks into our mouths. And sooner or later we’d excuse ourselves and leave the table to line up for the loo because what goes in goes through and eventually comes out. Think about it: we’re unique but the processes we go through are the same. With this in mind ask yourself:

Both modalities are painful and boring processes.
Learning is lifelong and authenticity is to live the continuum of self-discovery. It's what turns the key and opens communication, true dialogue that is essential to building realationships that have the strength to innovate in time so they endure. When learning is mutually meaningful progress is measurable and generates benefits for all.
Take care in how you walk in the world today remembering that your tone and touch leave fingerprints on those you encounter. And please make sure your footsteps are soft, your footprints light.
