Honestly at this point the wheels kind of fell off and YHC was ad-libbing the workout.  The goal was continuous movement and I believe we were able to do that.  

We give thanks to Guinness for teaching us new words of the English language.  Sometimes we Americans don’t quite understand the queen’s English. 

MOLESKINE:  The Janitor

The Janitor deserves the same respect as the CEO

The first story goes like this; President John F. Kennedy was visiting NASA headquarters for the first time in 1961, at the height of the race to the moon.  While touring the facility, he introduced himself to a janitor who was mopping the floor and asked him what he did at NASA.  The man simply said, “I’m helping to put a man on the moon.”

The second story;  YHC was standing in line at the grocery check out.   The next person in line was impatient, tapping their toes.  Apparently too important to be there, but there he was.  The cashier, on the upper end of the “normal” working age,  was bagging up the groceries.  All of a sudden, a carton of eggs slips. The customer scowls and followed with a sharp reprimand, “Did you break the eggs?!”  He doesn’t say “idiot” but might as well have. (The cashier didn’t by the way)  I tell him to keep his pants on, it’s all going to be ok when I get the scowl.  He jams his card in the machine, completes his transaction and huffs off.

Some people get that we are all in this together, JFK did.   Others think of themselves (and their time) as more important or more successful because of their career, title, what others have said.  Sure, they have more money or a tighter schedule than the average person but in all the cases, they’re wrong.

Success is not measured by your material wealth – Success is measured   BY  –  YOUR  –  CHARACTER!

How we treat people speaks volumes about our character. Each human being has value.   EVERY.  ONE.  Human worth is not defined by intelligence, education, money or popularity–it is the gift that God has given each of us, the gift within.  And money can’t buy that!

As we venture out today let’s treat each person with respect.   Every…..One….


Same Kind of Different As Me
