    >Imagine you are at an Airport. While you're waiting for your flight,
    >you notice a kiosk selling cookies. You buy a box, put them in your
    >raveling bag and then you patiently search for an available seat so
    >you can sit down and enjoy your cookies. Finally, you find a seat
    >next to a gentleman. You reach down into your traveling bag and pull
    >out your box of cookies.
    >As you do so, you notice that the gentleman starts watching you
    >intensely. He stares as you open the box and his eyes follow your hand
    >as you pick up the cookie and bring it to your mouth. Just then he
    >reaches over and takes one of your cookies from the box, and eats it!
    >You're more than a little surprised at this. Actually, you're at a
    >loss for words. Not only does he take one cookie, but also he
    >alternates with you. For every one cookie you take, he takes one.
    >Now, what's your immediate impression of this guy? Crazy? Greedy? He's
    >got some nerve? Can you imagine the words you might use to describe
    >this man to your associates back at the office?
    >Meanwhile, you both continue eating the cookies until there's just one
    >left. To your surprise, the man reaches over and takes it. But then
    >he does something unexpected. He breaks it in half, and gives half to
    >you. After he's finished with his half he gets up, and without a
    >word, he leaves.
    >You think to yourself, "Did this really happen?" You're left sitting
    >there dumbfounded and still hungry. So you go back to the kiosk and
    >buy another box of cookies. You then return to your seat and begin
    >opening your new box of cookies when you glance down into your
    >traveling bag. Sitting there in your bag is your original box of
    >cookies - still unopened.
    >Only then do you realize that when you reached down earlier, you had
    >reached into the other man's bag, and grabbed his box of cookies by
    >Now what do you think of the man? Generous? Tolerant? You've just
    >experienced a profound paradigm shift. You're seeing things from a new
    >point of view. Is it time to change your point of view?
    >Now, think of this story as it relates to your life. Seeing things
    >from a new point of view can be very enlightening. Think outside the
    >box. Don't settle for the status quo. Be open to suggestions. Things
    >may not be what they seem.
