Do not box with your neighbors

national night outIt’s hot in Texas in August. Really hot – like why do we live here hot. So, National Night Out, held in August around the USA, is held the first Tuesday in October for Texans. That would be tonight. We will be out on our street getting to know the newest neighbors and exchanging information, perhaps over a glass of wine or two. Bet there is someone you see every day but have no idea what his or her name is – neighbors, co-workers, support staff, waiters, customer service reps, etc. Today your job is to learn that name. Get to know someone close to you. That one small effort could be a game changer for you.

Watch two neighbors in Australia go to blows in the street:

There’s no place like Texas. Or Australia.
