    I Value Humility

    Better Far Better To Be Humble

    I find it simple and better just to leave as much of my EGO at the door, when I interact with people. More often you will go farther than if you feel that you have to defend everything you do. Case in point. I was at the DMV today. How it works is they give you a coded number and...
