Only two words

This post started in grade 12. I went to Burnaby North High School.  Sitting around talking with my closest friends; we challenged each other to find only two words to describe each other.

In this “game” the objective was to summarize how you saw that person.  We took our time and I remember I thought the words insightful, and I think the others did. It was quite a challenge but as you search for just the right words, you realize you have to boil down your word pictures to how you see that person’s strongest characteristic in your friendship with them.

What two words would you like to summarize you?  Are you thinking perhaps “loyal”, “considerate”,  “supportive”, “generous”.  What if acquaintances described you as “selfish”, “aloof” or “predictable”, or possibly “stingy”?

Of course, we cannot help all the impressions we create for ourselves, especially when they are brief, or while we are in our work “persona”.  But if your friends gathered together tomorrow to share two words to remember your life what words would you want to hear? (assuming you like Tom Sawyer could lurk at that event overhearing the comments)

In golf as in life it is the follow through that makes the difference.
