leadership dot #1717: potentially

I had to laugh when I saw this sign:
Even though the dog wasn't there, it was effective in keeping me at an extended distance. But my favorite part was the word "potentially." Aren't all dogs potentially vicious -- if taunted or provoked?
I think of the wide range of emotions and behavioral expression that animals and people potentially have. Employees could put a sign at their desk or family members could hang one in the kitchen: Potentially _____________. Potentially Happy. Potentially Crabby. Potentially Snarky. Potentially Giddy. 
We all have the potential to pick our attitude and emotions. Take care to choose one that doesn't keep others away.
