Creating Possibility

Find What Matters Most to Others

Karen Coulson - Monday, July 25, 2011

Gifts from the heart should reflect the heart of the person to whom the gift is given. Kc

Valentine’s Day has rolled by again with millions of women (and some men) waiting to see what the postman or delivery man would bring. As I watched the scenarios unfold at my office – with flowers and chocolates being delivered,  I suddenly remembered something -  I was waiting for MY surprise but I’d totally forgotten to buy a card or organize something for my husband!

In my anxiousness to ‘please’, I broke a rule I teach others. I bought him  chocolates! You may be thinking because I’m a dietitian, I should have chosen a healthy alternative – like a big basket of fruit – but that would be breaking ‘The Rule’ as well.

So what is this ‘Rule’ I’m talking about?  It’s one that can make all the difference in a relationship – whether at work or in your personal life. And this is it : 

The gift should reflect the values of the person who is receiving it.

It’s probably one of the easiest ways to show others you care – not only are you giving them a gift – you have taken the time to find out what they would value and appreciate. It shows you care enough about them  to find out what  is important to them.

So often, we go to great expense and effort to give something to someone  WE think they want. A few years ago, my son told me he’d like some gym equipment for his birthday… so I bought him a cross trainer. It’s still sitting in the rumpus room not used -  except by me… occasionally. I hadn’t asked him what type of equipment he wanted, I’d put my own interpretation onto his request.  

So if you want to have an extraordinary relationship – find out what the person you care about, cares about. Don’t wait for next Valentine’s Day to ask them what it is that you can do or say to have them feel you love them. And the most important part – act on it!!  It will lift the energy of your relationship to another level.

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

This is the right site for anybody who really wants to understand this topic.

You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually
would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin
on a topic which has been discussed for a long time.
Great stuff, just great!

Horizontal Siding and Vertical Sliding refers to the outer layer of
a wall, with shingles or boards or gaps subtly angled to shed water.
He knew the system well enough to not pay
many of his suppliers and sub-contractors, then would cover it up up by handing out fake lien
releases to make it look like they were paid. You wont get
a true imitation of your signature with this Android
app, unless you can cleverly manipulate the mechanics behind its operation, but
that is highly unlikely.

I'm really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant
for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
developer to create your theme? Great work!

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I believe that
you ought to write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but
usually people don't discuss these topics. To the next! Kind regards!!
