Our Weekly Letter for April 11, 2001

Greetings friends,

You can tell that Spring is here as all the Texas wildflowers are in bloom. The road sides are full of color.

We enjoyed seeing directors from 13 states at the Dance/Drill Team Directors of America convention in Fort Worth this past weekend.

Here is a thought for the day from Stephen R. Covey's "Daily Reflections for 
Highly Effective People:

"In the last analysis, what we ARE communicates far more eloquently than what we SAY or DO."

Camps are filling up quickly so make sure that you reserve your space. Use the online pre-registration form or the Private Camp Bid form. We will respond to you right away.

If you have just had tryouts, you should be looking for lots of things:

Hope you enjoy the additional quotes below from Stephen Covey and as always, 
please keep in touch!

"People are very tender, very sensitive inside. I don't believe age or experience makes much difference. Inside, event within the most toughened and callous exteriors, are the tender feelings and emotions of the heart. That's why in relationships, the little things are the big things."

As one successful parent said about raising children, "Treat them all the same by treating them differently," respecting their differences.

"Don't push; be patient; be respectful. People don't have to open up verbally before you can empathize. You can empathize all the time with their behavior. You can be discerning, sensitive, and aware and you can live outside your autobiography when that is needed."

If two people have the same opinion, one is unnecessary. It's not going to do me any good at all to communicate with someone else who sees the same thing. I don't want to talk, to communicate, with someone who agrees with me; I want to communicate with you because you see it differently. I value that difference. So when I become aware of the difference in our perceptions, I say, "Good! You see if differently! Help me see what you see."
