A lovely white decorative fence graces a curve near my home. At least twice a year a car misses the curve and crashes the fence. For 30 years, I’ve witnessed the repeated repair of this fence.
With each incident, I think surely they get the message: not a good place for a decorative fence. Yet, it is repaired again.
I trust we all have ‘white fences’ – those things that we continually repeat then repair?
‘White Fence’ = The things that just don’t work in a given set of circumstances.
- Is it an employee who repeatability drops the ball?
- Is it a friend whose negativity zaps your energy?
- Is it a habit you have that makes you feel bad?
- Is it a co-worker you continually pick-up after?
While I am not big into New Year’s resolutions, I am going to be more vigilant of ‘white fences’ in my life, how about you?

Deb, point well taken, weighing the value emotionally, financially, and spiritually to the action is really important.
