A Reflection of A Reflection
Each person has the good, the bad, and the ugly when they look in the mirror in the morning. Dr. Tekemia Dorsey uses this analogy to explain the need to understand who we are learning from and reflect on how they reflect. She also uses the word reflection about Ms. Crockett’s positive stories about her business. Dr. Dorsey asks her to also reflect on the hardships. The hardships include hurricane Katrina and losing customers as well as losing her homecare business. How do you get people to reflect on your reflections?
You have to lobby new ideas. You have to be creative. Now that everything is virtual, Ms. Crockett says it’s important to attend more events and grow gifts and talents and stop hiding behind safe places. She does understand the paranoia that comes from too much flattery or copying of your self-reflection, and growth cannot happen if people just take from the original and unique artist. A partnership has to be collaborative and not competitive.
