~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"One of the most important things in communication is to hear what is not being said." - Peter Drucker

By Zig Ziglar

One morning it was my pleasure to address the staff at a new Sam's Wholesale Warehouse at breakfast before they opened for business. . . I was really impressed when I noticed Dean Sanders, who had started working at Sam's part-time as a college student and was now the President of the company, moving some empty plates and cups to the trash barrel. As I observed him, I wondered how many presidents of $25 billion corporations would be doing such a thing.

First, would they be at a working breakfast; second, would they mingle (as Dean had done) so easily and freely with the staff, which included highly paid executives and hourly wage earners; and third, would they be cleaning up the breakfast dishes when so many other people were around?

. . . It's true: "He who is greatest among you shall be your servant" (Matt. 23:11 NKJV). Today, many people think others should serve them, but the reality is that those who serve best are those who will lead the most. Think about it. Adopt the servant's attitude (without being servile).

See you at the Top, Zig Ziglar

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Part 4 of 6 [2001: 1-15, 2-5, 2-26, 3-16, 4-6, 4- 26]

Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?

Why is it so hard to remember how to spell MNEMONIC?

If someone invented instant water, what would they mix it with?

Why is it called a TV "set" when you only get one?

Why does an alarm clock "go off" when it begins ringing?

Why does "cleave" mean both split apart and stick together?

Why is it, whether you sit up or sit down, the result is the same?

Why is it called a "building" when it is already built?

Why do they call them "apartments" when they are all stuck together?

If you keep trying to prove Murphy's Law, will something keep going wrong?

Why does flammable and inflammable mean the same thing?

How can someone "draw a blank"?

How come you never hear about gruntled employees?
