Are you different or unique?

Scott over at Hello My Name is Blog has a great post about being different versus being unique. Here’s some of what he says:

DIFFERENT comes from the Latin differe, which means, “to stand out.”
UNIQUE comes from the Latin, unicus, which means, “the only one.”

DIFFERENT stands out among people.
UNIQUE draws in from people.

DIFFERENT is something you choose to DO deliberately.
UNIQUE is something you simply ARE intrinsically.

By the way, if you don’t know Scott, he is the “unique” name tag guy that is pushing day 3000 of wearing a name tag (that’s just over 8 years!)

Happy Tuesday!
