Regardless of who you are, what high positions or ranks you hold, how much money you have, how much knowledge you think you have, no one can do without reminders.
As humans, we forget. Especially so during the heat of the moment. And there are also times, when a reminder given in the least expected situation could inspire us to do and be better.
Someone who thinks that they do not need to be reminded any more is probably the one who needs it the most. And it doesn’t matter where the reminder comes from – A good message is a good message. Do not confuse the bearer of the message and the message. Doing so only serves to feed one’s inflated ego, nothing else. Therefore, as much as you should welcome and seek reminders, give some to others as well. Pay it forward.
