Trust

George Schultz at age 100, on the importance of trust:

George P. Shultz is a former U.S. secretary of labor, treasury and state, and was director of the Office of Management and Budget. He is a distinguished fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.

Dec. 13 marks my turning 100 years young. I’ve learned much over that time, but looking back, I’m struck that there is one lesson I learned early and then relearned over and over: Trust is the coin of the realm. When trust was in the room, whatever room that was — the family room, the schoolroom, the locker room, the office room, the government room or the military room — good things happened. When trust was not in the room, good things did not happen. Everything else is details.”

Gratitude

I love asking my grandchildren: “what’s the proper attitude? “When I’m lucky, they yell back “GRATITUDE! “

As cheesy as it sounds, gratitude is a bigger factor in one’s personal well-being than most people realize.

The article below spells out a way to think about gratitude – about your past, about your present, and about your future – that can literally change the way you view your life.
