  • May I make an observation?

...I asked Bob after he had finished telling me about all the emails he was late in responding to. Usually he responds quickly, but he had gotten behind.

He wanted to hear what I had to say.

I pointed out that the evening before, he had gotten on the case of someone who had been slow in responding to him. I told him,

  • I know in my own life, when I get on someone else's case for something, I almost invariably catch myself not living up to my own standards and doing what I object to in them.

Bob smiled and noted,

  • I missed that.

A few minutes later he came back and commented about how he hadn't noticed the parallel at all. 

I love it that Bob responded with such receptivity. That speaks to his integrity. That's one of the reasons I love him.
