I walked around all weekend in a Boston covered in inches of ice. I walked carefully and I did not slip and fall. I got back to sunny California and one of the first things I did was slip after getting out of the shower. My hip and elbow hurt.

Some people are accommodating. These people are nice. Some people are too accommodating. This can be destructive. If you find yourself in this latter group, just think to yourself, “I will not give in so easily. I will not roll over at the first chance I get. I am not France.”
