When in Rome
That is a saying I hear a lot. This mode of thought however requires one to then put aside perceptions and feelings that could help us and allow us to contribute when we are traveling or even cooperating on a business or Kubb level
Recently I was in Oregon and Washington traveling for business.
During this brief excursion I noticed how there are differences and similarities from the two coasts as I am sure there are also some from the Deep South to the Midwest .
What I did notice however is that many
Personalities and ways of behaving or speaking--colloquialisms can be related to driving
Yes as I was driving I realized I was driving as a New Yorker getting where
I have to go. I noticed a car certainly a local, no question an older model car not a young person in the seat just tooting along.

North. That person was not so focused on the destination, the rules of the road or getting everyone somewhee ..... They were just being nice!
It reminded me of arriving from my red eye the night previously where everyone was tired we are all
Connections and I get on them plane and it is like a party.....it seems everyone knows each other they are joking around and having a ball .... Pretty cool
Does this mean New Yorkers are not nice? No! That is a perception
But noticing these similarities can certainly help you when you are traveling and when you are in competition
Notice the other teams. Talk to them
Get to know them. Once you do this you
Can have a better understanding of their perspective
......then you can crush them
In a friendly way of course
Do not so as the Romans do
Respect what they do then do what you do
It's getting warmer very soon
Let's get out there and share our perspective
