On my office wall, along with a calendar (I know, how old school, right?) and pictures of my children, grandchildren and dogs (and yes Jon, I even have one of you), I have several cards and posters.
The latter have sayings that I find highly relevant, inspiring and/or good reminders. One of these leads with, “Believe nothing,” and goes on to read, “no matter where you read it or who said it, not even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and common sense.” This saying is attributed to Buddha.
?I would hope those of you who read our blog, attend our presentations and workshops and who look to Jon and me for guidance and thought leadership, would always test what we say/what you hear with, “Does this agree with my own reason and common sense?”
