Where Is Your Arrow Aimed??

Written by Michael Lemm

Visiting my local Barnes & Noble I discovered a book called "This Glorious Quest" by Colin Pearce. Leafing thru it I found a little story that I quite liked.

Quote: Robin Hood lay dying.

Maid Marion gatheredrepparttar Merry Men to hear his last words and dying wishes.

'Good Friar Tuck', he said. 'Please open yon window that I may gaze one last time upon my beloved Sherwood.

'Sweet Marion, placerepparttar 141044 downy pillow under my shoulder that I may rest thereon.

'Little John, my old friend, hand me my trusted long bow fashioned fromrepparttar 141045 springy yew tree.

'Honest Will Scarlet, pass me an arrow crafted of birch, fletched withrepparttar 141046 feathers ofrepparttar 141047 King's grey goose.'

As each one quietly and reverently did as asked, Robin Hood gasped hi instructions, 'Now I bid thee, swear an oath on my life'.

'On thy life, old friend', they choked, struggling to hold back their tears.

As he pressedrepparttar 141048 feathered arrow shaft to his lips and drew backrepparttar 141049 bow with all his strength, Robin Hood uttered his last words. 'Your pledge: Where this arrow falls there I will be buried.'

Take Your Pants Off In Public!

Written by Michael Lemm

Take your pants off in public. Wear your heart on your sleeve.

Or maybe you're more sedate, more low keyed. It doesn't matter.

What matters is that people leave you thinking, "I just met a real person, a genuine human being, a positive honest spirit not trying to trick me to do anything."

Allrepparttar Hype Masters are missingrepparttar 141043 boat when they try to take you where they want you to go. Whatever they build won't last.

Get real. Be honest. Tell your story and listen. Care.

You'll build a business. A real one with real people. And have fun doing it.

Play withrepparttar 141044 dog onrepparttar 141045 floor. Stand up blocks withrepparttar 141046 kids. Share your past, tell your story. Listen!

Allrepparttar 141047 so called professionalism onrepparttar 141048 surface of any business is swept aside and voided whererepparttar 141049 real decisions are made EVEN WHEN it's big money, big decisions as in major corporations.
