“Do It Right or Go Home”


“There are only 3 colors, 10 digits, and 7 notes: it’s what we do with them that’s important.”    (Jim Rohn)


“When it comes to deciding whether a leader is believable (or a parent, teacher, family member, friend, co-worker), people first listen to the words and then watch the actions.   They listen to the talk, and watch the walk; then they measure the congruence.   …  Constituents are moved by deeds.  Actions are the evidence of a leader’s credibility.   The observation leads to a straightforward prescription:     DWYSYWD  –  ‘Do what you say you will do.’”     (Encouraging the Heart by Kouzes & Posner)


“Consciousness is, in the first place, not a matter of ‘I think’ but of ‘I can.’”    (Maurice Merleau-Ponty)


“If you can’t do it with love and cheerfulness, don’t do it at all  –  go home.”     (Mother Theresa)
