Congruence has become quite frankly, the Achilles’ heel of this generation. We produce some of the brightest people on the planet, but, unfortunately, too many of them are incongruent. They preach one message but practice another or, as was said over 2,000 years ago, “Why do you see the piece of sawdust in another’s eye, but not notice the wooden beam in your own?” This shows up especially in our roles as parents. You’ll hear people say, “Kids today just don’t listen,” but that’s because “They’re too busy watching.” We found that if you live a congruent life, when what you say consistently corresponds to what you do, a funny thing happens: Kids not only listen but, as they get older, they actually seek your insight and counsel.
