Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Made my day.

My partner told me last night that in working with me, he has learned:
--that there is another viewpoint to each situation, and
--to search for it.
He said that it's made his life more complicated, but he sees things better.

This may be the nicest compliment that I've ever received, professionally.*

*"We really trust you" and "You're ethical" aren't to be taken as compliments; those are expected character traits, even if I feel pride when I hear them.

That's a GREAT compliment! It seems he's smart enough to know that's a good thing; his life probably isn't much more complicated, he's just more aware of it's depth. Cool!

Good on ya Matt! :-) Teachable moments DO return benifits, even if it takes a while...
