Glad to hear it.
After stumbling around on this Earth for 55 years (so far
), I have found a couple
of things that are true.
One is that my track record as a good citizen, dependable worker and decent human
being matters a lot. That's the "We know him; he's all right" factor.
An other is that how I present myself and my case to a stranger, often matters more
than the dry technicalities of the case. That's the old "first impression" factor.
Many of us enjoy living the life of a rugged individualist, and some of us favor black
leather jackets for reasons of our own. All good and well. But I try to keep the
big picture in mind.
I don't really have time for the Lions Club. But I make time for it, a couple of days worth
each month, because it seems like a "right thing to do". And guess what... my Lions Club is
chock full of insurance agents and city planning commissioners. Who now know me.
