Do we take or do we give?
Do we multiply what we have, or consume and reduce?
Are we synergistic, or worse - the source of dysergy?
Make the conscious choice as to what role you hold in every situation. Best to always be the source of synergy, to give and multiply, but worse than being the opposite is to be ignorant of what role we hold. To blindly have impact with no idea what that impact, good or bad, is.
Make a choice and hold yourself to account for it.
