One reader emailed me with an interesting comment. She said she liked the book title but that the word “relentless” usually conveyed a negative connotation for her. Apparently she encountered the word mostly in less desirable contexts.

I found her comment enlightening, especially since I’ve previously stated that “relentlessness” was a character trait I seek to enhance in my own life. It’s a reminder that words have power and meaning beyond dictionary definitions. We need to choose words carefully and listen intently to be sure we hear the intended message.

I always appreciate email responses and feedback, but let’s get a conversation going here as well. Please take a moment to log in and share your thoughts.

Question: What images come to mind when you consider the word “relentless?”
