It takes two to speak the truth – one to speak and another to hear.

The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist, the opportunity in every difficulty.
~ L. P. Jacks

The Wrong Time and the Right Time

“People are more interested in how much you care, not how much you know.”
from an attendee at the Peak Retailer Summit

“People sometimes act funny at those career applicants who have had a lot of jobs.  Why?  When a mechanic has worked on multiple cars, that experience makes him more of an asset to someone who needs automotive work done. Find out why the changes were made, and if other factors like integrity, dependability check out, you may discover a wealth of talent.”
The Elk

There is no wrong time to do the right thing.  There is no right time to do the wrong thing.
Lou Holtz

“Oh, Say can you Say!”

November 6th, 2011 No comments

Our almost 5 year old son and I were reading “Oh Say can You Say” by Dr , the other day.

This page made me think.  It says something true.  It should be remembered by me and by you.

You may be an owner, or maybe a boss.   Or perhaps in the ranks, which is not a loss.

We need each other, we really do.  One needs others to earn, live and do.

Work for your company, as if someday you will lead it.  Let each company know, that each person is needed.

That’s almost enough of such stuff for today, a lesson from Seuss‘ ” “Oh, Say can you Say!”
