Thought for the day?.

I thought I would have some fun with today’s “Thought for the day”. Many times when we say or do something, it’s a matter of our own perspective.

You may say, or write something to someone, for it to have one meaning, and they heard, or saw it from a different perspective then the one intended. This is extremely important when working a deal. That’s why I’ve always said, Communication, is the responsibility of the communicator.

Punctuation Perspective

An English professor wrote the words, “Woman without her man is nothing” on the blackboard and directed his students to punctuate it correctly.

The men wrote: “Woman, without her man, is nothing.”

The women wrote: “Woman! Without her, man is nothing.”

Now talk about seeing things from a different perspective.

Great post! I agree that sometimes just the smallest change in punctuation can change the entire way we see things.

Just a few years ago I was writing a song about my thoughts on abortion (I don’t agree with it) and I wanted to call the song “Baby’s Laughter.”

Then, after I had written the title down I noticed if I just made one adjustment the entire message changes. Watch:

Baby’s Laughter
Baby Slaughter

See what I mean?
