Just remember the world is not a playground but a schoolroom. Life is not a holiday but an education. One eternal lesson for us all: to teach us how better we should love.
Here’s a business book worth reading/remembering on Valentine’s Day: Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends by Tim Sanders. Karl Krayer presented his synopsis of this book at the First Friday Book Synopsis way back in August, 2002 (before we recorded our presentations, so, unfortunately, this one is not up on our companion web site).
Here’s Sanders’ advice, from the book:
“Be a lovecat. And that means, Offer your wisdom freely. Give away your address book to everyone who wants it. And always be human.
The three necessary steps to getting there (to being a lovecat): sharing your knowledge, sharing your network, sharing your compassion.
Being a lovecat is exactly what all of us must do if we want to succeed in the twenty-first century.”
