(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)


This is, of course, a phonic Distinction. Grade A and Grey Day sound the same (in English), but have very different contexts.

When you think of a grey (or, if you prefer, gray), overcast, perhaps chilly, wet day you may feel somewhat down emotionally. You may not think of such a day in positive terms.

Or, you may look forward to a grey day, with a good book, comforting fire, your favorite warm drink, and no other duties or appointments. For you, that could be a Grade A grey day.

It’s all in what you make of it.


Coaching Point: Can you find the Grade A in all your Grey Days?
