Sometimes, ideas for posts come to me in conversation, sometimes based on what I read, and others I'm inspired by the real situations my clients are in. But believe it or not, my all time favorite source for ideas is Twitter. I find the social media platform to be the best pulse to find out what’s of interest in our lives.
Ive seen a lot of chatter on Twitter about people's opinion on the difference between a boy and a man. I wasn’t compelled to respond until I saw several tweets articulating age as an important factor. While I believe age is part of the equation, let’s be clear: not every boy becomes a man.
Here are the top seven differences between boys and men. Ladies, listen up.

“The man is aiming at a goal; the boy is drifting aimlessly.” — Author Unknown

Men make and keep commitment, boys don’t.

A boy tells you about his day. A man will ask you about yours, and listen.
