Yesterday Tim Burdick noted how quickly he moved from being the center of attention to being ignored. He has resigned his position with a social service agency and the day before yesterday was the day the official memo went out. It created a flurry of compliments and good wishes, but this was quickly preempted by talk of a replacement and then a swift return to business as usual.

It made me think about ways I’m unintentionally fickle. For example, I say I care about something and then do nothing about it. The worst cases are those where I’m totally oblivious to how my words and actions (or my silences) affect others and I don’t even realize I’m being inconsistent or hypocritical.
