Need Reminding?

I was reading something today which quoted a man named Dr. Johnson. No idea who that is, but here's what he said that I liked:

"People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed."

Working with teenagers, I totally see that! How many of us can remember the first time we were taught to drive? It took a lot more than one instruction, it took a lot of reminding to get it right (and some adults still need some reminding).

What do we need to remind ourselves of (after all, if we don't evaluate ourselves, who will)? What have we gotten upset about because "we've heard it before" but really aren't living it?

Just some thoughts from Dr. Johnson (whoever you are).
