>Something to think on

>My father sent me this in an email and I thought it poignant. I don’t know if the reference to Charles Schultz is correct but interesting all the same.

quote starts here

The Charlie Schulz Philosophy
(This is marvelous!!)
Scroll thru slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full effect. The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz,the creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip. You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them. Just read the post straight through, and you’ll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz.
See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

The lesson:

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials the most money…or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most. Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia !

    >I find that very true. I did terrible with the first questions, but the second no problem.
