1:00 An unplanned journey 

The story of "Mrs. Kelly"

How do we cope with compassion fatigue?

We can’t help others if we don’t care for ourselves

Stories implant the lessons we need to survive and thrive

We can’t control what happens to us, only our responses


4:30 Response is the root of responsibility

The difference between reacting and responding

Looking at the bright side helps us cope with the darkness


6:30 Give yourself permission to not respond

Take a step back

Meet others where they are

Blessed are the flexible…

Balance humor against dignity -- no regrets


12:00 The rabbi who forgot his own lessons

We don’t cope well with deviations from the norm

Take responsibility for your responses


14:30   The ticket to heaven

Is it ever right to deceive or mislead?

A little creativity goes a long way


21:00 We can’t break out of the box if we think in binary terms

“Disbelieve everything I say; I’m telling the truth.”

“Did that really happen?”

Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story -- what does that mean?


26:00 Our perception is the reality of our truth

If our intent is not to deceive, we let the story tell itself

The unreliability of memory

We have to hold ourselves accountable


33:00 Second to nun?

Mark Twain: If you tell the truth, you can have a terrible memory


34:30   The word of the day:  perfectionism

Perfection is not achievable, so being a perfectionist is setting ourselves up for failure

Striving toward an unreachable goal may enable us to achieve our potential
