Have You Filled a Bucket
Everyone has an invisible bucket. We are at our best when our buckets are overﬂowing- and at our worst when they are empty. Everyone also has an invisible dipper. In each interaction, we can use our dipper either to ﬁll or to dip from others’ buckets. Whenever we choose to ﬁll others‘ buckets, we in turn ﬁll our own.
