ToothbrushI wrote recently in a blog post in business and personal planning for ourselves in 2010 about looking through your friends list and perhaps firing a friend or two. Here is

Mr. Electric Toothbrush's Guide To Firing Friends.

You know, they have that superiority attitude to everything in your life. They have the electric toothbrush. You are still brushing manually-tsk, tsk!! They have a better car, house, wife, husband, kids, multiple vacations throughout the year. What about YOU and your sick dog? They couldn't care less. Do they ever call to offer assistance with ANYTHING? The answer is a big FAT No!!! Do they ever take time to LISTEN to you? You know the answer.

Bottom line is they are insecure, they aggravate you, they are NOT helpful, and if you do give them any of your time it is all ONE WAY. Like a street that does not have two directions. Friendships are supposed to be give and take. We can't have anyone suck the living life out of us once we find them and engage with them. Tell them where they can stick their electric toothbrush. I guarantee your 2010 will be off to a much better start than where you are currently. It's ok, you have my permission  to do this. Don't feel guilty or heartless. Sometimes we just need a gentle reminder to move forward in our lives. It's healthy.

You know how everyone can't like you just the way YOU are. Well you are reciprocating. Everyone can't like them either and it is time for YOU to drop out of the picture. Wow, you probably feel lighter already. Onward and upward.

Firing friends that are not good for your life is a GOOD thing!!

It's very tough to do...but I totally agree that firing friends, family or whoever is sometimes necessary for the health of any business.  It's like pulling the weeds in the garden.

Gary,

Egomaniacs are not my kind of people....in fact, I avoid them like the plague.

Gary, Good advice!  Re-connecting with friends who lift you up is a good thing, too!

Not so easy when they're relatives though!  I try to just ignore them... haha.
