Easter Thought 2019

Evan Esar (1899–1995) was an American humorist who wrote Esar’s Comic Dictionary in 1943, Humorous English in 1961, and 20,000 Quips and Quotes in 1968.

“Easter is the only time when it’s perfectly safe to put all your eggs in one basket.”

We hope you have a blessed Easter celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ with your loved ones.   While we love Esar’s quote and it brings a bit of humor, we would be remiss if we did not share the most famous quote of The Bible for the Gospel of John:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

– John 3:16

The Road to Character

“When most people think about the future, they dream up ways so they might live happier lives.

But notice this phenomenon. When people remember the crucial events that formed them, they don’t usually talk about happiness.

It is usually the ordeals that seem most significant.  Most people shoot for happiness but feel formed through suffering.”

{David Brooks, Author of “The Road to Character”}

Great Business Tip!

On a recent vacation road trip from Texas to South Carolina, we ran into some car trouble along the way and were forced to find the nearest car repair shop.

The place we happened upon looked like the last place you would think to look for some business insight.  But there on the wall was a sign that said the following:

“If you don’t do something to promote your business, something terrible happens.  Nothing!!!”

Your Finest Moment is Around the Corner…

“Our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

{M. Scott Peck, Author of “The Road Less Traveled”}

Understand How the ‘Other’ Person Thinks

It is important to understand how the ‘other’ person thinks.

“Players think, play me and I’ll show you.  Coaches think, show me and I’ll play you.”

— {Shaka Smart, Texas Head Basketball Coach}

This also applies in a business setting.  Whether you are in a leadership position or hoping to be there one day, and it is important for you to understand how the other thinks.
